This introductory textbook is written for undergraduate students in audiology, speech pathologists working with hearing impaired adults, audiology assistants, and prospective hearing instrument specialists studying to obtain their state license. It also is an excellent introduction for Au.D. students or practicing audiologists just beginning work with hearing aid dispensing.This extremely practical and engaging book logically takes the reader from beginning to end of the entire hearing aid selection and fitting process. The chapters sequentially provide the reader with the essential knowledge needed to fit modern hearing aids, along with links to handy websites for further study and reference.The authors, who both are experienced in the day-to-day fitting of hearing aids, and have taught hundreds of students with a variety of backgrounds, provide a consistent overview of the fundamentals of the entire hearing aid selection process. The chapters provide step-by-step guidelines covering both the art and science of hearing aid fitting.
