A new edition of this text will be released in December.

Adult Audiologic Rehabiliation, Second Edition
 is an advanced textbook for doctoral level audiologists that focuses solely on adults with a completely international perspective. The second edition includes nine new chapters and is the only advanced text to meet the need for the high level of preparation required for doctoral level training, and presents clinicians with the latest practice techniques and technologies.

With ever changing technology and new methodologies in client care, the second edition of Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation is a critical resource to audiology education. The book covers definitions of audiologic rehabilitation, an overview of the area, psychosocial impact of hearing loss, assessment strategies, current technologies, treatment methodologies, research needs, and special issues in audiologic rehabilitation. It has been deliberately structured to move the reader from introduction, to specific details of the specialty of audiologic rehabilitation, to providing insights into characteristics of this patient population, and thence to a framework for assessment and treatment of the impact of hearing loss.

From the Foreword

"The contributors to the volume are leading authorities who have pioneered new approaches in the field. Many are from countries other than the United States thereby providing an international perspective to the volume. The breadth of coverage is substantial, as reflected by the large number of chapters on the various topics relevant to adult audiologic rehabilitation. This is an impressive volume containing a wealth of information. The range of topics and their relevance to practical issues in adult audiologic rehabilitation is impressive. The chapters deserve to be read and reread in order to gain an in-depth appreciation of the multi-dimensional considerations to be taken into account in order to maximize the efficacy of adult audiologic rehabilitation. Read, understand, and make good use of the valuable information contained in this substantive volume."
Harry Levitt, PhD


"Named to Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences - Speech, Language & Hearing 2018 list."
—Doody's (May 2018)

"I particularly like the expansions of sections III and IV."
Lisa Illich, University of Washington (2013)

"Great text."
Joseph Smaldino, Illinois State University (2013):

"I am happy to see that there are additional chapters that provide needed information – i.e. patient motivation, self efficacy and one-on-one speech communication training."
Kathryn Wexler, University of Northern Colorado Greenley (2013)

"Four chapters provide the most up-to-date information on listening technology that this reviewer has seen, particularly their integration in an aural rehabilitation framework. These chapters include 'Self-Assessment in Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation: Research Applications' by Noble; 'Assessment for Implantable Technologies' by Spitzer and Mancuso; 'Hearing Aid Technology and the Importance of Verification' by Bentler and Wu; and 'Hearing Assistance Technology Systems as Part of a Comprehensive Audiologic Rehabilitation Program' by Thibodeau.

Other strengths of the book include the direct application to aural rehabilitation of data from various disciplines, such as biology, neurology, psychology, and cognition. The book provides outstanding analysis of studies that meet standards of scientific rigor and efficacy; up-to-date research, areas; clinically useful tables; and insightful case studies. Perhaps the best presentation of the bases of visual speech perception and its clinical applicability is in the chapter by Lansing.

In summary, overall this is an outstanding book that contributes to the profession's knowledge base and clinical applicability. This book would greatly benefit all students and professionals working in aural rehabilitation or interested in aural rehabilitation research. This book would be valuable as a course textbook for Au.D. or Ph.D. students who are taking a course in adult aural rehabilitation."
Steven Bornstein, University of New Hampshire, in the International Journal of Audiology
