Cynthia McCormick Richburg, an audiologist and associate professor in the Speech-Language Pathology program, recently published a textbook entitled School-Based Audiology.
Richburg co-wrote the textbook with Donna Fisher Smiley, also an audiologist and coordinator for the Educational Audiology/Speech Pathology Resources for Schools (EARS) Program at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The textbook takes readers through the history of audiology in the schools and teaches the core concepts needed to serve students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing in the school environment.
Topics include classroom acoustics, hearing screening programs, diagnostic evaluation protocols, hearing aid and FM system procedures, and classroom amplification. Anyone who will serve in an educational audiology position will benefit from this text.
The textbook is published by Plural Publishing. You can find School-Based Audiology on their website.
