This complete compendium of information on facilities for the care of the deaf from sociological and educational viewpoints is most valuable to the otologist who has frequently to advise the deaf adult or the parents of the deaf child as to care of the patient.
The text covers the following items: medical school personnel in speech and hearing problems, hearing aids accepted by the Council of the American Medical Association, teacher training centers, speech and hearing clinics, state agencies, rehabilitation services, conservation of hearing programs, research departments in schools for the deaf, directory of organizations, publications and libraries, and tabular statements of American schools for the deaf.
The uninitiated otologist who has not been working in this field will be surprised at the enormous endeavors being exerted by trained laymen and professional educators of the deaf in handling the problems. A list of instructors of the deaf covers sixty-four pages
