School-Based Audiology takes the reader through the history of audiology in the schools, focusing on legislation that has shaped the face of school-based audiology as it is practiced throughout the United States. Core concepts involving academic achievement in students who are deaf/hard-of-hearing, classroom acoustics, hearing screening programs, hearing loss prevention programs, diagnostic evaluation protocols, hearing aid and FM system verification procedures, and classroom amplification are covered throughout the chapters. Concepts regarding collaboration with other school-based professionals and classroom accommodations and modifications are outlined and provide examples for real-life application. Each chapter of this textbook concludes with a list of vocabulary words and terms used in the educational environment. Practice management concepts not typically discussed in textbooks on this topic are presented, including minimum competencies, third-party billing, program outcome evaluation, mentoring, and preceptoring. Recently qualified and even seasoned audiologists will appreciate attention given to recent advances in areas like cochlear implants, auditory processing disorders, and auditory dys-synchrony as they relate to managing students with hearing loss. The varied and ever-changing roles of audiologists in the educational setting are described and highlighted with “vignettes,” or short personal statements describing real practitioners’ degree and training information, work settings, job description within their school districts, and day-to-day responsibilities. These personal accounts allow the AuD student an “inside look” at what audiologists do in the schools. Students are able to experience through these readings how different, exciting, and even challenging school-based positions can be. Instructors using this textbook will be able to supplement their lectures with the information described here, and will appreciate the structured approach wherein concepts contained in the chapters progressively advance in tune with the reader’s knowledge. Instructors’ goals will be met, as well as KASA requirements, because this textbook provides students the necessary knowledge needed to serve in an educational audiology position.

Culturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is unique in that it provides an innovative perspective on cultural competence in the field of communication sciences and disorders. It is imperative for speech-language pathologists and audiologists to be aware of diverse aspects of globalization: how these aspects may affect their own knowledge, strengths and biases, service provision, their clients' lives, as well as their clients' relationships to service providers. The purpose of this text is to facilitate the creation of knowledge and the development of attitudes and skills that lead to culturally responsive practices. The text presents a conceptual framework to guide speech-language pathologists and audiologists toward cultural competence by becoming critically engaged users of culturally responsive and globally engaged practices. The text is focused on speech-language pathology and audiology, but also draws from theoretical frameworks in other disciplines for an inter-professional, transdisciplinary and macro practice perspective, and is appropriate for other allied health professions. This information will help students and professionals build their own conceptual framework for providing culturally and linguistically responsive services, and engage with others globally. Key Features: Case studies to facilitate students' and professionals' knowledge and skills regarding culturally and linguistically responsive practicesJournal prompts and discussion questions that challenge individuals to use critical and dialectical thinkingReal-life activities that can be completed inside or outside the classroom or therapeutic settingSuggested readings from the current literature in cultural and linguistic responsiveness, cultural competence, and global engagement in order to build knowledge and skills, and to influence student attitudesCulturally Responsive Practices in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is intended for courses on cultural competence in speech-language pathology and audiology programs. It is also appropriate for general multicultural courses in speech-language pathology and audiology, and such courses in allied health programs. Students in speech-language pathology and audiology programs are required to gain knowledge and skill competencies pertaining to culture, cultural competence, cultural bases of normal and impaired communication development, cultural correlates of various developmental and disordered categories, and cultural/linguistic backgrounds and influences of clients and their families. This textbook may also be used as supplemental material in language acquisition courses in communication sciences and disorders programs, and in special education courses that teach special education teachers about working with children who have communication disorders. In addition, this textbook is appropriate for a larger audience of health care professionals who deliver services to individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and who train health care providers of the future. Professionals in health care fields beyond speech-language pathology and audiology will find this textbook to be practical, informative, and essential to their work with diverse populations locally and abroad.
