This recently released book builds on the rich history of audiologic research and teaching at Washington University, home to one of the best medical schools and research facilities in the United States, as well as to the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID). For almost 100 years, the CID has been educating children with deafness, researching the causes and treatments of deafness, instructing teachers, and training audiologists.

Valente, Fernandez and Monroe have a long track record of providing comprehensive audiologic education to all those seeking a better understanding of this expansive field," said Dr. J. Gail Neely, Director, Otology/Neurotology/Base of Skull Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri.
