Several books on the general topic of introduction to communication disorders have been published between 2000 and 2009. Why then publish another one on this topic? The answer is that this new text satisfies the need for an introduction that is written with a welcoming and uniform style across chapters and that presents richly illustrated discussions that weave historical notes and contemporary discoveries into a cohesive account of the broad spectrum of communication disorders. Designed for beginning university-level students, this book provides essential information presented in a straightforward and engaging manner on a wide range of communication disorders found in children and adults. The authors experience in teaching an introductory class is evident in the books student-friendly approach and its effective presentation of the core information in the field.

Michael Robb, PhD Michael P. Robb has worked as a speech-language pathologist at the Meyer Children's Rehabilitation Institute in Omaha, Nebraska (now known as the Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation). Since obtaining his PhD, he has held faculty posts at the University of Hawaii, the University of Connecticut, and most recently at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.Review:
Tim Bressman and Lynn Ellwood, Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, (2010): "In 'INTRO', Michael P. Robb pulls out all the stops to make the disciplines of speech-language pathology and audiolgy come to life for the undergraduate students new to the topic. ... A very interesting and well-written book that would be well suited as a textbook for an introductory course in communication disorders. The textbook differs from other introductory textbooks because a single author wrote the text. This gives the book an appealingly uniform look and feel."
