Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition
Dec 222018
 

Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition is a comprehensive and challenging textbook for undergraduate students in audiology and hearing science, for graduate students beginning an AuD program, especially those who may not have a background in the subject, and for other health care professionals who would benefit by a better understanding of hearing science and audiology practices. This textbook is written in a style that tries to make new or difficult concepts relatively easy to understand. The approach is to keep it readable and to punctuate the text with useful figures and tables.

This textbook seeks to provide a solid foundation in hearing science and clinical audiology, and is an excellent resource for those preparing for the Audiology Praxis Exam. It also serves as a companion to the Audiology Workbook, Third Edition, by Dr. Steven Kramer and Dr. Larry Small. From science to practice, this textbook covers anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, acoustic properties and perception of sounds, audiometry and speech measures, audiogram interpretations, masking, outer and middle ear assessments, otoacoustic emissions and auditory brainstem responses, hearing screening, hearing aids, cochlear and other implantable devices, and auditory disorders supported with expected audiologic data. The reader is also introduced to the profession of audiology and what it means to work as an audiologist. Where appropriate, variations in procedures for pediatrics are presented.

New to the Third Edition
The third edition of Audiology: Science to Practice has been extensively revised from the previous edition. The authors systematically reviewed each of the chapters from the previous edition to expand, update, and reorganize the material to make it even more useful to the student new to audiology, and at the same time continues to be more comprehensive than one might find in other introductory texts on audiology. The authors retained the features that worked well in previous editions, including an easy to read format, key learning objectives, and synopses within each chapter with bulleted highlights for review. Chapters are now organized in a more traditional sequence beginning with information about the profession of audiology, followed by acoustics, anatomy/physiology, and an expanded coverage of clinical audiology. References and figures have been updated, including photos of new hearing instruments and amplification devices.

This edition has four new chapters: Chapter 10. Outer and Middle Ear Assessment; Chapter 11. Evoked Physiologic Responses; Chapter 15. Implantable Devices; and Chapter 16. Vestibular System. Another substantive change includes a revision to Chapter 14 on Hearing Aids to make it more appropriate for the undergraduate student or others who want an overview of this important part of audiology. This edition now comes with a PluralPlus companion website with PowerPoint lecture slides and selected figures for instructors as well as an additional chapter on the history of audiology and selected resource links for students.

Essentials of Assessment Report Writing, Second Edition

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Essentials of Assessment Report Writing, Second Edition
Dec 212018
 


The bestselling guide to reporting writing, updated and reworked for today’s practice
Essentials of Assessment Report Writing offers effective solutions to the creation of reader-friendly, yet targeted, psychological, and educational assessment reports. Parents, clinicians, clients, and other readers need more than test-by-test descriptions—they need an accessible analysis of the entire situation to determine their next steps. This book provides clear guidance for busy practitioners seeking ways to improve their report writing skills. With a focus on current practice, this new second edition covers DSM-5 updates and the latest assessment instruments including the WJ IV, WISC-V, WAIS-IV, KTEA-3, and the CAS2. New discussion includes advice on tailoring the report to the audience, and annotated case reports provide illustrative models of effective report styles, interpretation, and analysis. Key concepts are highlighted for quick reference throughout, and end-of-chapter questions help reinforce understanding.

Reporting styles vary widely within the field, in both content and style; there is no definitive “standard,” but many reports fail to reflect best practices and therefore prove less than useful to the reader. This book provides expert guidance throughout the reporting process to help practitioners provide high-quality, accessible reports.

Integrate assessment results to provide a person-centered report
Identify and navigate critical decision points in the interpretive process
Write efficiently yet effectively while enhancing the reader’s experience
Provide an accurate, informative, and readable assessment report
Incorporate practical recommendations to address the referral concerns
Expertly-conducted assessments should culminate with a carefully constructed analysis that provides direction via clear communication. Because this report will be used to inform treatment, intervention, and ultimately, the client’s quality of life—it is critical that it provides clear, informative guidance in a way that readers can understand. Essentials of Assessment Report Writing provides comprehensive guidelines for navigating through the report writing process.

An introduction to the world of bioinformatics

Massive increases in computing power and the ability to routinely sequence whole genomes of living organisms have begun to fundamentally alter our understanding of biology, medicine, and agriculture. At the intersection of the growing information and genomics revolutions sits bioinformatics, which uses modern computational power to reveal patterns in biological data sets, especially DNA, RNA, and protein sequences. Computational Biology: A Hypertextbook, by Scott Kelley and Dennis Didulo, provides a wonderful introduction for anyone who wants to learn the basics of bioinformatics. This book is more than a textbook because of the wealth of online ancillary materials and how the print and electronic components are integrated to form a complete educational resource. Aspects that make Computational Biology: A Hypertextbook a unique and valuable tool for teaching and learning bioinformatics include: Clear explanations of the basic biology of DNA, RNA, and proteins and how the related bioinformatics algorithms work; Extensive exercises that enable students to practice with the same bioinformatics applications that are used by scientists worldwide; Tutorials, sample data sets, and interactive learning tools developed with teachers in mind and field-tested by hundreds of students; Online tutorials and curated web links that are accurate (instead of frustrating!) and won’t lead to dead ends; Online resources that work on multiple platforms and electronic devices.

Computational Biology: A Hypertextbook is written in an accessible voice, punctuated with humor, and designed to significantly increase computational competencies. Biology and computer science undergraduate and graduate students will thoroughly enjoy learning from this unique hypertextbook, as will anyone with an interest in exploring this burgeoning topic.

Scott T. Kelley is a professor of biology at San Diego State University. He received his doctoral degree from the University of Colorado and his bachelor’s degree from Cornell University. His lab uses phylogenetic methods and culture-independent molecular tools to study environmental microbiology, and Kelley has published extensively on the human microbiome, built environment, and numerous natural environments. Dennis Didulo is a data analytics and software engineer working at Becton, Dickinson and Company. He received his master’s degree in information technology at De La Salle University and his second master’s degree in bioinformatics at San Diego State University.

Review
Kelley and Didulo have weaponized bioinformatic education! As an undergraduate educator I am always looking for tools to help make the basic tenants of sequence data analysis understandable, and here it is! From standard BLAST to RNA structural alignments and probability analysis, this is a resource that every student of microbiome and molecular analysis should have. The balance between book and online material is well done, providing a framework to develop skills that a student can build upon. –Jack Gilbert, Faculty Director, The Microbiome Center; Professor, Department of Surgery, University of Chicago; Group Leader in Microbial Ecology, Argonne National Laboratory
