The material in this monograph is based upon the experience and knowledge acquired in the military and Veterans Administration auditory rehabilitation units for acoustically handicapped adults. The presentation will be of invaluable aid to planners of hearing rehabilitation centers in the United States and other countries. Included in the monograph are chapters on the necessary instructional program, designing and equipping the audiology clinic, personnel requirements, and audiology facilities for the rehabilitation of the acoustically handicapped in the United States. There are valuable appendices containing suggested sources and the approximate costs of equipment items and a selected bibliography.
Although this publication will have a limited appeal, it doubtless represents the most authoritative correlation to date of the various allied activities in the new science of audiology. It certainly can be studied with benefit by all those interested in the fields of otology, acoustics, and speech therapy.
