This book addresses an underserved area in the field of diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology, specifically, people with disabilities. The first section presents an overview of specific disabilities and how different cultural practices impact on their management; the second section focuses on the evaluation of hearing impairment within various disabled groups; and the third section concentrates on overall approaches to audiologic management. Evaluation and assessment chapters include cases of people with AIDS and HIV, Cerebral Palsy, Visual Impairments, Down Syndrome, Older Adults with Alzheimer's disease, as well as others. The book will serve two audiences: practicing audiologists and other hearing healthcare providers who work with disabled populations, as well as graduate students of audiology and medical students in Au.D. programs.

The topics include several areas of discussion including amplification and assistive technology, augmentative and alternative communication, and the important area of counseling.
