The second edition of Medical Speech--Language Pathology: A Practitioner's Guide presents the latest information on neurological communication disorders and swallowing and voice disorders in adults. The book features complete coverage of the pathophysiology of communication disorders, describing the underlying degenerative, neurogenic, and psychogenic causes of speech-language impairments. A thorough review of the theoretical issues involved provides practitioners with the conceptual framework needed to develop effective treatments that address both functionality and the quality of life of the patient.

Features:

  • Practical approaches to the diagnosis and management of common disorders such as aphasia, dysphagia, and more

  • Strategies for rehabilitating patients with conditions such as head and neck cancer and dementia

  • Comprehensive discussion of service delivery issues, such as the interface between speech--language pathology and psychiatry, and approaches to patient management in acute care and intensive care settings

  • Study questions at the end of each chapter--ideal for reviewing key concepts

  • Extensive lists of references to aid pursuit of topics in more depth


  • Medical Speech--Language Pathology serves the needs of all speech--language pathologists, otolaryngologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, researchers, and students in these specialties for a single-volume reference on all aspects of care for patients with communication disorders.
