Because there is no single approach to the management of Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD), this new book offers the latest available information on a variety of compatible approaches. It is based on the 1996 conference of the same title that was hosted by the State University of New York at Buffalo (where the co-authors are based).
Each chapter is by a different authoritative contributor-a professional in audiology, speech-language pathology, or psychology. The book contains both technical details and practical, straightforward information to enable people to make proper and useful recommendations for those with CAPD. Features include: Coverage of metacognitive and metalinguistic approaches, memory and attention processing deficits, the use of FM devices for audiologic management, and a speech-language approach; detailed explanation of the management strategies suggested in the Buffalo Model; Innovative approaches and management techniques for special populationsInformation on auditory integration therapy for children, and a new interactive software program that strengthens temporal processing.
Audiologists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, special-education teachers, and even parents. A Longwood Professional Book.
