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.

"John Oyiborhoro, EdD used to be the director of audiology for the United Cerebral Palsy of New York City, but today in private practice (Boro Audiology Clinic), consultant to the National Institute for People with Disabilities (YAI) and for many years a teacher and author of scientific papers in the field of audiology.
Audiology was born as a result of the Second World War with the rehabilitation of injured soldiers and over time technology has helped to advance the diagnostic and service part of this field, where many people incur many years of disability (one in ten Americans is hearing impaired). This book with nine contributors is divided into two parts (assessment and alternative communication) with ten chapters: overview of disability, cerebral palsy and developmental disabilities, HIV/AIDS, visual impairment, dementia, otitis media, cerumen management, assistive technology, alternative communication and respectful counseling.
The last chapter on respectful cpunseling is very important with several case stories to explain and point out diversity and cultural differences that needs to be taken in consideration, when working with people with a lifelong disability as hearing imparment.
This timely book will be of interest to people working in human development and with people with disabilities, where a focus must be put on the field of hearing impairmnent also in order to faclitate a better quality of care."
