Musiek and Chermak's two-volume, award-winning handbooks are back in newly revised editions. Extensively revised and expanded, Volume I provides comprehensive coverage of the auditory neuroscience and clinical science needed to accurately diagse the range of developmental and acquired central auditory processing disorders in children, adults, and older adults. Volume II provides expanded coverage of rehabilitative and professional issues, detailing intervention strategies for children and adults. Building on the excellence achieved with the best-selling 1st editions - which earned the 2007 Speech, Language, and Hearing Book of the Year Award - the second editions include contributions from world-rewned authors detailing major advances in auditory neuroscience and cognitive science; diagsis; best practice intervention strategies in clinical and school settings; as well as emerging and future directions in diagsis and intervention. Exciting new chapters for Volume I include: Development of the Central Auditory Nervous System, by Jos J. Eggermont Causation: Neuroanatomic Abrmalities, Neurological Disorders, and Neuromaturational Delays, by Gail D. Chermak and Frank E.Musiek Central Auditory Processing As Seen From Dichotic Listening Studies, by Kenneth Hugdahl and Turid Helland Auditory Processing (Disorder): An Intersection of Cognitive, Sensory, and Reward Circuits, by Karen Banai and Nina Kraus Clinical and Research Issues in CAPD, by Jeffrey Weihing, Teri James Bellis, Gail D. Chermak, and Frank E. Musiek Primer on Clinical Decision Analysis, by Jeffrey Weihing and Sam Atcherson Case Studies, by Annette E. Hurley The CANS and CAPD: What We Kw and What We Need to Learn, by Dennis P. Phillips
Frank E. Musiek, PhD, is Professor and Director of Auditory Research in the Department of Communications Sciences, and Professor of Otolaryngology in the School of Medicine at the University of Connecticut. He is the 2007 Recipient of the James Jerger Career Award for research in Audiology, and recipient of the 2007 Book of the Year Award for his two-volume text, Handbook of Central Processing Disorder, co-edited with Gail Chermak. He has published over 140 refereed articles, 39 book chapters, and 8 books in the areas of auditory evoked potentials, central auditory disorders, and auditory neuroanatomy/physiology. Dr. Gail D. Chermak is professor and chair of the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at Washington State University. She held the Washington State University College of Liberal Arts Edward R. Meyer Distinguished Professorship in 1999-2002 and she received the College's Distinguished Faculty Award in 2002. She holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology, and she is a fellow of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). She is included in several major American and international biographical listings. Funded by the Kellogg Foundation, the World Institute on Disability, and the Fulbright American Republics Research Program, she has traveled extensively, consulting with public and private agencies in the area of rehabilitation service delivery. She has chaired and served on a number of national professional committees and task forces, including the ASHA Work Group on Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), which recently completed a technical report and position statement. Presently, she serves on the AAA's CAPD Task Force. She is an assistant editor for the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology and she serves as editorial consultant for several other professional and scientific journals. She has published extensively and delivered numerous workshops, nationally and internationally, on differential diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation of CAPD. Her co-authored articles and letters to the editor on CAPD and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were named by her peers as among the best in diagnostic audiology in four of the last five consecutive years. Her 1997 book, Central Auditory Processing Disorders: New Perspectives, co-authored with Frank Musiek, has become a landmark volume in the field.
