For Introductory Audiology courses for Communication Disorders majors and non-majors. Introducing Foundations of Audiology, a concise version of the fundamental aspects of audiology and audiometry. Designed for students who need an understanding of the topic as part of their professional career in speech-language pathology, nursing, or other health care professions, this new textbook provides students who are new to the topic and discipline with the information they need to succeed. The authors give readers a review of the audiology profession, the basics of sound, normal hearing function, and the causes and effects of hearing loss. It then covers a thorough explanation of audiometry, screening programs, and special procedures for difficult to test populations. The textbook concludes with a chapter summarizing rehabilitation and approaches to intervention. Keeping the focus on the relevant information that is consistent with the length and scope of a typical introductory course, Fundamentals of Audiology takes a potentially complex and involved subject and presents in in a readable, accessible manner.
