"As described in this volume, these major advances both in our understanding
of central auditory processing disorder as well as in the neurobiology of the
auditory system (and specifically how these are both affected by experience
dependent learning) have been integrated into novel intervention strategies
for children as well as aging adults with auditory processing disorders."
- From the foreword by Paula Tallal, Ph.D.
Volume II covers rehabilitative and professional issues, detailing practical intervention strategies for children and adults. The chapters in this volume cover auditory neuroscience and acoustic foundations of intervention, evidence-based practice, multidisciplinary approaches, and emerging and future directions in intervention.
