Craniofacial Anomalies: A Beginner's Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists assists in recognizing craniofacial anomalies, and in understanding the implications of these anomalies, particularly as they impact the acquisition and development of communication skills. The book reviews basic anatomical information pertinent to craniofacial growth and development as well as relevant genetic and embryological information needed to help draw conclusions based on comparison of prenatal growth to postnatal appearance. Specific protocols for observing orofacial structures are described, along with ethical considerations related to that specific assessment, and information is provided for accurately making permanent visual documentation of the observations. A chapter on building professional support features development of patient support groups and ethical use of the World Wide Web. A helpful appendix includes Syndromes with Communication Disorders, conveniently organized on the basis of location of the craniofacial anomaly.

Associate Professor, Speech-Language Pathology, Dept of Communication, Miami UniversityReview:
"This book is directed to speech-language pathologists with limited experience in the field of craniofacial anomalies. Although a valuable resource, Craniofacial Anomalies: A Beginner's Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists could not be recommended as a "stand-alone" text on craniofacial anomalies in a graduate-training program in speech-language pathology." -- Lisa Letcher-Glembo, Ph.D., CCC-SLP and Martine Richardson Sacks, M.D., FAAP, Cleft Palate Craniofacial Journal
