Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, now in its second edition, is a practical, easy-to-follow, informative guide for students and clinicians. The authors present each case from a holistic perspective, encouraging clinicians to consider executive functions, attention, memory, and visuospatial skills of the person with aphasia during the assessment process and throughout treatment.

This edition begins with a review of the basics of brain-behavior relationships and pertinent medical terminology for treating individuals who have a neurological impairment. Each disorder is then introduced in a case-based format with a Target ModelTM that includes a diagnostic profile along with treatment considerations and a functional analysis of the case.

New to the second edition:

  • Current therapeutic information and strategies with a review of recent research pertaining to individuals with acquired language disorders and individuals with cognitive communication deficits secondary to mild brain injury
  • Resources for cognitive assessments of people with aphasia, and new directions and interventions for patients with dementia
  • 23 treatment programs including 11 new approaches such as Speech Entrainment; A Program for Phonological Alexia/Agraphia; Oral Reading for Language in Aphasia with Virtual Therapist (ORLA-VT); and more
  • Discussion of innovative approaches for treating aphasia such as Repeated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS); Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (A-tDCS); and Cathodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (C-tDCS)
  • A "Test Your Knowledge" section with questions based on 10 patient scenarios that instructors can also use as a professional discussion tool
  • Color inserts and a Quick Reference Diagnostic Chart for Acquired Language Disorders (ALD) that addresses and provides diagnostic information for the major nonfluent and fluent aphasias as well as other ALDs
  • A sample, completed Functional Communications Connections Worksheet included in the color insert and a blank version included in the appendix for treatment planning purposes
  • An accompanying CD with updated PowerPoint slides to complement other pedagogical materials

By providing a variety of ALD patient cases along with critical thinking activities for students and a review for clinicians, Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, Second Edition, demonstrates its relevance in both the classroom and clinical settings.

Review:

"This book endeavours to cater for all. It reviews neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, assessment methods and treatment approaches for aphasia, right hemisphere disorders, TBI, dementia and encephalopathy. The final chapter considers how the assessment and treatment of acquired language disorders will develop, including discussion about bio/pharmacological treatments and AAC.

The authors make an avid effort to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The examples given include a description of the client, a functional analysis, pointers for critical thinking, treatment considerations and discussion about appropriate therapeutic methods. What we liked about the examples is that they have not overlooked factors, such as cognition and family/carer implications. ..." --Laura Wrangles and Kate Mackay, Adult SLTs, Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust, Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists, (2014)

"Acquired Language Disorder: A Case-based Approach could not be more relevant considering the current and future states of healthcare in our country. Healthcare reform calls us to practice based on evidence, produce clinically significant changes as a result of the care we deliver and reserves payment for the right therapy, in the right dose, by the right professional in the right setting. A case-based approach provides clinicians with that evidence." --Garry Pezzano, MS/CCC-SLP, Senior Vice President of Clinical Practice Genesis Rehab Services, none, (November 2013)
