Over the past decade there has been a significant increase in interest from educators and the general public about deafness, special education, and the development of children with special needs. The education of deaf children in the United States has been seen as a remarkable success story around the world, even while it continues to engender domestic debate. In Educating Deaf Students: From Research to Practice, Marc Marschark, Harry G. Lang, and John A. Albertini set aside the politics, rhetoric, and confusion that often accompany discussions of deaf education. Instead they offer an accessible evaluation of the research literature on the needs and strengths of deaf children and on the methods that have been used-successfully and unsuccessfully-to teach both deaf and hearing children. The authors lay out the common assumptions that have driven deaf education for many years, revealing some of them to be based on questionable methods, conclusions, or interpretations, while others have been lost in the cacophony of alternative educational philosophies. They accompany their historical consideration of how this came to pass with an evaluation of the legal and social conditions surrounding deaf education today. By evaluating what we know, what we do not know, and what we thought we knew about learning among deaf children, the authors provide parents, teachers, and administrators valuable new insights into educating deaf students and others with special needs. Features *Presents a summary of the current state of deaf education and related implications for parents, teachers, and other "gatekeepers" *Authors are leading authorities in deaf research and education *Explains complex information in a way that will be useful to teachers, parents, and future professionals, as well as to researchers

Aphasiology: Disorders and Clinical Practice, 2/e offers a uniquely balanced and comprehensive presentation of aphasia, encompassing both theoretical study and clinical practice. Written in a highly accessible style, this text carefully explains and illustrates key paradigms in research and treatment. The author uses tables to summarize essential points and to provide historical overviews. Structured according to a course outline, the book begins with etiology and moves quickly to clinical assessment. It teaches diagnostic thinking with respect to the relationships between symptoms and hidden impairments in cognitive terms. This thinking is illustrated with research as well as more explicitly with assessments and treatments. Through this approach, a future clinician should acquire an appreciation for the scientific investigation that supports a clinical discipline. The Second Edition features updated information on many topics, such as functional assessments and treatments (including ethnography and outcome measures) and medical aspects and treatments keep the text current and competitive in the field. It also includes a new chapter on dementias supplements current chapters on other cognitive disorders (right hemisphere dysfunction and traumatic brain injury). Each of these chapters includes additional information on rehabilitation as well as up-to-date information on current research. The content has been reorganized within and between chapters to maximize readability and ease of use as a course text. Psycholinguistics background has been restructured to improve efficiency and readability of the text. Chapter 6 on "Special Investigations" has been eliminated from this edition and its topics have been redistributed, improving the overall flow of the text.
