The Video-Based Aural Rehabilitation Guide: Enhancing Listening and Spoken Language in Children and Adults is the “first aural rehabilitation book of its kind to intertwine chapter text with over 200 captioned videos,” according to an announcement from the book’s publisher, Plural. This resource is intended to educate undergraduate and graduate students in speech-language pathology, audiology, and education of the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as enhance the knowledge and skills of practicing professionals. The videos are also an “invaluable resource for students enrolled in a clinical or student teaching practicum.”

Videos feature speech-language pathologists, audiologists, Listening and Spoken Language Specialists, teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, early interventionists, otologists, and occupational therapists practicing in settings such as clinics, private practices, schools, hospitals, and the community. Topics addressed in the the text and videos include hearing technologies, aural rehabilitation procedures, factors that affect intervention outcomes, fundamentals of assessment, supports for education, counseling for children and adults with hearing loss, and the psychosocial well-being of persons with hearing loss and their families.

The Video-Based Aural Rehabilitation Guide can be used as a stand-alone text or as a companion alongside the most frequently used aural rehabilitation textbooks.
