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 help students to develop knowledge of the causes and features of communication disorders • 60 data analysis exercises give students practice in analysing clinical linguistic data • Full answers to the exercises are provided, saving the lecturer time in devising responses; students can use the responses to test their own knowledge and understanding • A detailed glossary of terms makes the text self-contained, avoiding the need to consult other sources for explanations • Suggestions for further reading are provided for each chapter.
