Scholars with Autism Achieving Dreams
Lars Perner, PhD., Editor

NEW RELEASE

This book is an anthology of eight inspiring autobiographical journeys about living on the spectrum of autism. All have achieved remarkable academic success despite their challenges, some already with a bestselling book. There's a common myth that living on the spectrum foretells severe disability, failure or worse—institutionalization. This book was published to challenge these notions for families with a son or daughter higher on the autism spectrum. Each contributor's insights and wisdom are evidence of bright, sensitive and successful individuals who have refused to let a diagnosis identify them. They are examples of strength and triumph any of us would be proud to call our own.

 

Dr. Perner is Assistant Professor of Clinical Marketing at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. He’s written extensively on autism issues, including college preparation for individuals on the spectrum, the use of special interests to enhance learning, the “big picture” of autism, and the importance of research to identify autism subtypes.

The Consumer Handbook
on Hearing Loss and Noise

Marshall Chasin, Au. D. Editor
2010

This book is written for the consumer who has suffered hearing loss caused from noise. Many of the chapters have clear strategies that can be implemented to reduce the effects of noise when it cannot be avoided completely.

The two most common causes of hearing loss are presbycusis (hearing loss associated with aging) and noise exposure. While being over the age of 75 is not preventable, hearing loss from noise is preventable. As Dr. Chasin poses in his Introduction, the question becomes, “What can be done today to prevent hearing loss tomorrow?” This book will provide many of the answers sought by those who have endured dangerous noise levels, and will address what you can do today and tomorrow.

  • Learn about the process of how we hear
  • Discover what happens to our ears when we are exposed to noise
  • Read about the many effects that noise can have on the body other than hearing loss
  • Understand the risks you take with recreational noise such as hunting or watching an auto race
  • Incorporate into your life the clear strategies for prevention of hearing loss from noise
  • Understand the reasons why you cannot hear in noisy environments as well as in quiet places
  • Learn how to improve communication in the presence of noise
  • Besides hearing loss, tinnitus is a secondary effect of noise, and often is the first warning sign to possible impending hearing loss
  • Study some suggestions in architectural design and embrace those strategies
  • Some pharmaceuticals have been studied to minimize the effects of noise
  • Examine the health consequences of noise
  • Read about the various standards that have been implemented to minimize the effects of noise on our hearing and well-being
  • Hear from a lawyer-audiologist about your rights as a citizen

Hearing Aids: The First 30 Days
by Jess Dancer, Ed.D.
2009

Your task is to read and interact with 2 pages every day during the first 30 days of your hearing aid trial. Dr. Dancer will be your guide. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience as a Professor Emeritus of Audiology. He’ll provide you with calmness and a pathway of centeredness along your journey, and keep you focused on what matters most. In the process, as Dr. Dancer states, “…You will discover a greater sense of yourself, more independence, perhaps higher self-esteem, less anxiety, and gladly, a greater desire to socialize. The net result of better hearing is many improved relationships, especially among those you love and those who love you.”

2009 Book Review

“Wonderful, wise and witty—(Five Stars!)—the hearing aid version of Life’s Little Instruction Book. This is a gem of a book chock full of technical advice and practical wisdom. From the very first page Dr. Dancer reaches out with warmth and understanding to educate, encourage and enlighten readers as they maneuver through the sometimes awkward first 30 days of wearing hearing aids.
 “The reader-friendly format offers short sections that inform and inspire, integrating a series of discussions and worksheets that help readers to document feelings and celebrate progress. Dr. Dancer’s upbeat and honest approach explains, teaches and soothes, helping readers to understand processes, develop realistic expectations and implement personal strategies for success.
 “This instructive handbook takes new hearing aid wearers on a wonderful journey, offering day-by-day guidance along a clear path to hearing aid acceptance. It should be standard issue with every new hearing aid dispensed.”
