About the Authors
  • Designed to help those studying speech-language pathology, this highly useful workbook is both an introduction to the basic concepts and a teaching tool to develop and test students' knowledge. Frequently encountered communication disorders are included, as are conditions less commonly found in speech-language pathology curricula but which feature increasingly in clinical caseloads. The book features: • 330 short-answer questions to help students to develop knowledge of the causes and features of communication disorders • 60 data analysis exercises to give students practice in analysing clinical linguistic data • Full answers to the exercises, saving the lecturer time in devising responses, and allowing students to use the responses to test their own knowledge and understanding • A detailed glossary of terms, avoiding the need to consult other sources for explanations and making the text self-contained • Suggestions for further reading for each chapter.

    • Provides comprehensive coverage with exercises and data relating to the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders
    • Contains suggestions for further reading for each chapter, which are pitched at the appropriate level
    • All data analysis exercises are based on actual clinical data, so readers gain by working with authentic data which reflects what they will encounter in a clinical setting
