Written in a user-friendly style by three distinguished scientists/editors/clinicians, who have taught the course to thousands of students at premier educational programs, the scope of the book is all-inclusive, comprehensively covering anatomy, physiology, acoustics, perception, and swallowing. The book represents a quantum leap forward toward preparing speech-language pathologists in training to understand importance of the science that underpins their work and provides framework for approaching the evaluation and management of each of their future clients. This text provides all that instructors need to ensure that their students are fully ready for the clinical practicum training. Describes scientific principles explicitly, and in translational terms that emphasize their relevance to clinical practice. Features original illustrations and artwork designed to be instructive learning tools customized by a single illustrator and are largely in full color. Includes clinical scenarios woven into the text to emphasize the relevance of the concepts presented and focus the discussion on humanistic values. Rich with analogies that aid thinking about processes from different perspectives. Features "sidetracks" that relate interesting historical and contemporary facts to the discipline of speech science. Provides a framework for conceptualizing the uses, subsystems, and levels of observation of speech production, speech, and swallowing. Ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses preparing students for clinical study.
