This much-anticipated new edition of Sound Field Amplification continues its reign as the only communication sciences book devoted to sound field amplification. Both professionals and students will benefit from the presentation of the theoretical foundations of sound field amplification and its practical applications. Readers will appreciate the straightforward and comprehensive approach to topics such as how children ?learn? to hear and how acoustics affects the learning ability of all children. The new edition continues to provide a solid foundation to understanding why the topic of sound field amplification should be included in any discussion of what is needed to ensure success in children?s learning. The book also provides the information necessary to conduct sound surveys, obtain funding for amplification systems, and act within the parameters of the laws and regulations governing this topic.

Carl Crandell has been an associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Florida since 1994. He obtained his doctorate from Vanderbilt University in 1989 in Audiology. His research has been focused in how the effects of environmental distortion and room acoustics affect various populations� speech recognition. He is working to create appropriate acoustical standards.

Joseph Smaldino is a professor at Northern Illinois University, where his research is focused on Classroom Amplification, Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR), Efficacy of Hearing Aid Fittings, and Otoacoustic Emissions. He has been a leader in developing the role of the educational audiologist.
