This leading introductory book on communication disorders uses student-friendly content to explore current research, central theories, and the nuts and bolts of clinical therapy.

 

Updated with the most current research and information, the newly revised eighth edition of Human Communication Disorders continues to cover a broad range of topics including speech and language development, genetics, the biology and physics of communication, and an overview of cultural and linguistic diversity. With an emphasis on evidence-based practice, experts in speech-language pathology and audiology place communication processes and communication disorders in perspective, define basic theories of causation, introduce identifying characteristics, and present an overview of procedures for evaluation and treatment – while at the same time focusing on the real people who both have communication disorders and the real people who study them.

 

The new eighth edition has been rewritten with a more contemporary, student-friendly approach and style that makes the content more engaging and easier to process.

Updated with the most current research and information, the newly revised eighth edition of Human Communication Disorders continues to cover a broad range of topics including speech and language development, genetics, the biology and physics of communication, and an overview of cultural and linguistic diversity. With an emphasis on evidence-based practice, experts in speech-language pathology and audiology place communication processes and communication disorders in perspective, define basic theories of causation, introduce identifying characteristics, and present an overview of procedures for evaluation and treatment — while at the same time focusing on the real people who both have communication disorders and the real people who study them.

 

The new eighth edition has been rewritten with a more contemporary, student-friendly approach and style that makes the content more engaging and easier to process.  Infused with an engaging writing style and level-appropriate content, the new edition ensures that students receive a strong foundation in communication disorders along with a solid awareness of important topics. Experts on topics ranging from communication development and craniofacial disorders to communication delays and disorders in young children continue to offer extensive coverage of each individual subject. The personal perspectives of chapter authors allow students a realistic glimpse of the profession from experts in the field.

 

A collection of case studies reveals the personal side of communication disorders and offers real-world examples of chapter topics. E nd -of-chapter study questions help students to review the material, think critically about what they have just read, and enhance the learning experience, and u p-to-date research and information on clinical practice keeps the text current, relevant, and fresh.
