The Role of Communication Partners in the Audiological Rehabilitation by Vinaya Manchaiah, PhD, and Brian Taylor, AuD, is a new book that uncovers the psychological and social processes that the communication partners of people with hearing loss might experience, Nova Science Publishers announced.
Given the growing importance of audiological rehabilitation among clinicians around the world, the book focuses on several critical aspects of audiological enablement as well as rehabilitation of patients and their communication partners. This is reportedly the first book to focus solely on the communication partners of persons with hearing loss, and it strives to help uncover the human dynamics associated with hearing loss.
According to Nova, this book is aimed at healthcare professionals looking for a good supplement to their reading about audiological rehabilitation. In addition to enhancing existing coursework in this area and family-centric care, the chapters reveal several tools and tips that audiologists can put into immediate practice. For these reasons, this book is a useful resource for early career communication disorder students and allied healthcare professionals alike.
About the Authors: Vinaya Manchaiah is a Jo Mayo Endowed Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, Lamar University, Texas. Brian Taylor is the Director of Clinical Audiology for the Fuel Medical Group.
