Additional Book Details
Written by James Jerger, PhD, a pioneer in the field of audiology and one of the founding fathers of the American Academy of Audiology, this book aims to give students and young audiologists a sense of the history of the profession.
Beginning with the first commercial audiometers, the book traces the development of both the overall profession, and the principle sub specializations that have developed within it over the past half century. Emphasis is placed on the contributions of the many individual clinicians and researchers who have pioneered various aspects of the audiological knowledge base and its wide clinical applications.
Topics include the early pioneers, the military programs during and after World War II, and the four major paths in which the profession has developed: the diagnostic path, the rehabilitative path, the screening path and the auditory processing disorder path. Other topics include, tinnitus, creation of the Academy, and the development of audiological education.
Every audiology student and practicing audiologist should read this book for a full understanding of the history of the profession of audiology.
This book is perfect to accompany an introduction to audiology course, or recommended reading for new graduate AuD students.
