Foundations of Pediatric Audiology
Fred H. Bess, Judith Gravel
Details: 507 pages, B&W, Softcover, 8.5" x 11"
This book is a compilation of readings representing the basis for the practice of pediatric audiology. It contains forty-seven selected articles that are considered critical to understanding the fundamental principles in the field. Divided into five sections, the book covers the development of audition in infants, background information for current practice, test techniques and technology, and hearing loss in special populations. The readings in this book provide a foundation of knowledge that should be considered essential for anyone in the field of pediatric audiology.
"Professors Fred Bess and Judy Gravel have brought together many years of pediatric audiology experience to develop a collection of seminal articles that form the basis for modern clinical practice in pediatric audiology.... This book should be a core text not only for students seeking a deep understanding of pediatric audiology but also for experienced audiologists working with children."
