Practical, concise, and time-saving, Hearing Disorders Handbook provides comprehensive, reliable and accurate descriptions of auditory and vestibular disorders, their frequency of occurrence, etiology, diagnosis, and management – all in a single resource.
It approaches the subject from a multitude of perspectives from the diverse disciplines that make up the typical hearing rehabilitation team – including audiologists, otologists, speech and language pathologists, plus those working in the related fields of education, genetics, pediatrics, and psychology. Each topic is presented in concise and consistently organized form, sifting the essential from the unessential, and includes references to original print and electronic sources. Gaps in the knowledge of hearing and vestibular disorders are clearly denoted and directions to sources of information that supplement the material available about each disorder are given.
