Overview

Chermak and Musiek's two-volume, award-winning handbooks are back in newly revised editions. Extensively revised and expanded, Volume II provides expanded coverage of rehabilitative and professional issues, detailing intervention strategies for children and adults. Volume I provides comprehensive coverage of the auditory neuroscience and clinical science needed to accurately diagnose the range of developmental and acquired central auditory processing disorders in children, adults, and older adults.

Building on the excellence achieved with the best-selling 1st editions which earned the 2007 Speech, Language, and Hearing Book of the Year Award, the second editions include contributions from world-renowned authors detailing major advances in auditory neuroscience and cognitive science; diagnosis; best practice intervention strategies in clinical and school settings; as well as emerging and future directions in diagnosis and intervention.

Exciting new chapters for Volume II include:

  • Evidence Supporting Auditory Training in Children, by Jeffrey Weihing, Gail D. Chermak, Frank E. Musiek, and Teri James Bellis
  • School Polices, Process, and Services for Children with CAPD. by Georgina T.F. Lynch and Cynthia M. Richburg
  • Historical Foundations/Pioneers, by James W. Hall III and Anuradha R. Bantwal
  • Remediation of Spatial Processing Issues in CAPD, by Sharon Cameron and Harvey Dillon
  • The Dichotic Interaural Intensity Difference (DIID) Training, by Jeffrey Weihing and Frank E. Musiek
  • Considerations for the Older Adult Presenting Peripheral and Central Auditory Dysfunction, by Gabrielle Saunders, M. Samantha Lewis, Dawn Konrad-Martin and M. Patrick Feeney
  • Case Studies, by Annette E. Hurley and Cassandra Billiet
  • Clinical and Research Issues in CAPD, by Jeffrey Weihing, Teri James Bellis, Gail D. Chermak, and Frank E. Musiek

Review

  • Fiona Ford, Specialist SLT, The Orchards Primary Academy, Birmingham, Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists (2014):
    "These books provide a wealth of evidence-based information to address the fact that, despite awareness of an auditory-specific perceptual disorder (APD or CAPD) in children and adults for more than 60 years, a consistent approach to diagnosis and treatment has yet to be determined.

    Volume 1 provides information about the auditory neuroscience and clinical science needed for diagnosis; volume 2 details intervention strategies, rehabilitation and professional issues.

    Both volumes emphasise the need for a multidisciplinary approach involving audiologists, SLTs, teachers, psychologists and physicians for assessment, differential diagnosis and intervention.

    Case studies provide an invaluable insight for clinicians into how those with APD may present and provide a framework for assessment and intervention. Sharing relevant case studies with parents and carers could be a helpful way of offering support and hope in an area where I have found limited awareness as a clinician and parent."
