We proudly present the new third edition of Foundations of Aural Rehabilitation: Children, Adults, and Their Family Members, one of our most successful and widely used texts for audiologists and speech-language pathologists. A readable, comprehensive resource, it covers topics such as identification and diagnosis of hearing and other hearing-related communication challenges, patient and family counseling, selection and fitting of listening devices, communication training, literacy promotion, and much more. General information is provided in the early sections, while the latter half of the book focuses on adult and child populations, respectively. New to this edition is a chapter devoted to infants and toddlers who have hearing loss and an expanded consideration of informational counseling
