9781597563161: Audiology in the USA

Written by James Jerger, PhD, a pioneer in the field of audiology and one of the founding fathers of the American Academy of Audiology, this book aims to give students and young audiologists a sense of the history of the profession.
Beginning with the first commercial audiometers, the book traces the development of both the overall profession, and the principle sub specializations that have developed within it over the past half century. Emphasis is placed on the contributions of the many individual clinicians and researchers who have pioneered various aspects of the audiological knowledge base and its wide clinical applications.
Topics include the early pioneers, the military programs during and after World War II, and the four major paths in which the profession has developed: the diagnostic path, the rehabilitative path, the screening path and the auditory processing disorder path. Other topics include, tinnitus, creation of the Academy, and the development of audiological education.
Every audiology student and practicing audiologist should read this book for a full understanding of the history of the profession of audiology. This book is perfect to accompany an introduction to audiology undergraduate course, or as recommended reading for new graduate AuD students.
Includes a foreword by Charles Berlin.

About the Author:

James Jerger, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, received his Ph.D. degree in audiology from Northwestern University in 1954. He remained on the NU faculty until 1961, and then moved to Gallaudet College in Washington, D.C., for a brief period as Research Professor of audiology. From 1962 to 1968 he served as Director of Research at the Houston Speech and Hearing Center, and then moved to Houston's Baylor College of Medicine, where he remained for the next twenty-nine years as Professor of Audiology in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences, and as Chief of the Audiology and Speech Pathology Services of the Methodist Hospital. In 1997 Jerger sought, but failed to achieve, semi-retirement in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences of the University of Texas at Dallas. Here he continues to mentor doctoral candidates in audiology as Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence.

Review:

***** 5 Stars! This is an excellent book that should be required reading for all audiologists. It provides a wonderful history of the profession with a look to the future." Dr. Hossam Sanyelbhaa Talaat, Menoufiya University, Shebien Elkoom, Egypt, Community Ear and Hearing Health, (2009): "...Provides an insight into the exerted efforts for development of contemporary audiological diagnostic and rehabilitative tools." Moe Bergman, Ear & Hearing, (2010): "... A remarkably documented account of the vitality and creativity of our practicing and research community. ... The high level of research and publications that form the thrust of this book should give all of us pride in this vigorous, often rambunctious, still young field. --Kelly Kaufman, Au.D. (La Salle University School of Nursing and Health Sciences ), Doody's Review Service, (2009)
