MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Acquired Speech and Language Disorders offers a unique integrated approach to the neurology and anatomical functions of speech language disorders. The book provides a specific and thorough explanation of the neurological basis of speech and language deficits occurring subsequent to neurological diseases or brain injury. It provides comprehensive coverage of both the clinically recognized forms of aphasia and motor speech disorders, in both adults and children; as well as more recently recognized language disorders such as Parkinson s and related diseases, right hemisphere damage, closedhead injury and dementia. Finally, in addition, recently–developed brain imaging methods such as MRI and PET are outlined and their implications for speech–language pathology discussed. The second edition of this important text has been thoroughly revised and updated with brand new material.
