Reviews Deafness and Communication: Assessment and Training, edited by Donald G. Sims, Ph.D., Gerard G. Walter, Ed.D., and Robert L. Whitehead, Ph.D., 447 pp., $38.00, Williams and Wilkins, 428 East Preston St., Baltimore, MD 21202, 1982. This text is designed for practitioners working with deaf individuals in either the classroom or clinical situations. This text is a must for audiologists , speech therapists, and teachers of the deaf working with students in either selfcontained or mainstreamed situations. A particular merit of this text is that it includes information about the deaf adolescent and young adult. The needs of this population have infrequently been included in texts in the fields of the speech, hearing, and education of the deaf. The unique contribution of this work is that in addition to providing information on communication modalities normally addressed in texts of this nature, such as speech and speechreading , it provides useful information on tactile perception, sign language instruction, and English language evaluation and instruction. This text should be given serious consideration by students of aural rehabilitation; as well as be a useful reference for teachers, clinical audiologists , speech pathologists, and administrators of programs providing services to deaf individuals .
