Overview

Recently acquired by Plural Publishing, the second edition of this highly respected book in the field of audiology takes a comprehensive look at the basic principles underlying central auditory processing disorders and the screening, assessment, and management of these disorders in school-age children. The book focuses on the practical application of scientific theory in an easy to read, clinically applicable format. For instructors, this second edition includes step-by-step assessment tips, normative data, methods of test interpretation, development and implementation of management plans, and integration of central auditory information. Learning and communication profiles are also included to provide a comprehensive picture of CAPD assessment and management.

  • This title was acquired by Plural in 2011, previously published with Singular in (c)2003.

Review

  • Dr. Dori-Eva Bamiou, MD, MSc, FRCP, PhD, UCL Ear Institute, ENT & Audiology News, 22(5) (November/December 2013):
    "...This book (second edition) is written at an intermediate level…but may also be useful for those with more advanced knowledge. The strength of the book is that [Bellis] writes from a clinican’s as well as a researcher’s perspective and makes the ‘hard science’ parts interesting and relevant to those who are better versed in clinical than academic/ research skills.

    The book is written in the style of an auditorium delivered live lecture...[T]he reasoning is easy to follow, and [Bellis] provides clinical scenario examples and occasionally draws similarities between central auditory processing disorders (CAPD) and other conditions to illustrate and make more accessible the point that she makes. The book synthesizes a great deal of information to make clinically relevant recommendations/ conclusions...This book is a good starting point for those wishing to understand this complex field, whether they are clinicians with little or no research experience, or researchers with little clinical exposure."
