About the Author:

Several years ago Mosby took over the publication of Dr. Brookshire's self-published text entitled An Introduction to Aphasia, and encouraged Dr. Brookshire to expand the scope to include more than just Aphasia. Subsequent editions included coverage of additional neurogenic communication disorders to make it more comprehensive. Today, no other book on the market covers all of the disorders Introduction to Neurogenic Communication Disorders, 6e covers. The new sixth edition is based on Dr. Brookshire's 20+ years of teaching graduate survey courses on neurogenic communication disorders. New features added to this edition, such as sidebars, critical thinking exercises and key concepts, are all based on what works in the classroom and what students like.
