Audiology in Developing Countries $67.00
Editors: Bradley Mc Pherson (Center for Communication Disorders, University of Hong Kong) and Ron Brouillette (Education Consultant, Director of Primary Education, Bangladesh)
Book Description:
This book addresses the challenges faced by audiologists in developing countries.It gives the professional reader a clear overview of the specific barriers to quality hearing health care in developing nations and the ways in which these barriers can be overcome.

One of the key hearing health care advances of the past twenty years has been the introduction of universal newborn hearing screening systems. Such programs are proliferating all over the developed world; but are infants in the developing world any less needy? What is happening here? Other important concerns are also analyzed in detail, including the prevalence of hearing loss, school-based screeing, the education of hearing health care workers, and occupational hearing loss in developing countries.

Of course, one of the most significant advances of the last twenty years is the growth, expansion and recognition of the profession of Audiology all over the world. With that change came an appreciation for the significant contribution audiology makes to improving hearing health care. This book will have an impact on the lives of many disabled individuals.
