Editorial Reviews


“In my estimation, this text is more comprehensive than many other texts currently available.  The inclusion of case studies helps the reader better understand how theory can be linked with clinical practice.”

- Joseph E. Etienne, Western Kentucky University



“…I really like this book.  It is readable, current, and would serve as a good professional recruitment tool for nonmajors taking a survey course.  It truly makes the profession come alive through its use of case studies.”

- Virginia G. Walker, Florida State University


“… If there is a course offered that introduces students to clinical practice, this book would be ideal.”

- Rosalind R. Scudder, Ph.D., Wichita State University


“This work is unique in concepts and implementation.  The chapter format in which theories and scientific facts are presented as chapter lead ins and case studies are presented in story formats reads well and captures the active involvement of readers.  The clinical sidebars which accompany the chapter contents are focused, illuminating, and well placed.  This feature adds to the readability and provides immediate explanations.”

- Elisabeth H. Wiig, Ph.D., Knowledge Research Institute

Format: Paperback
This book is ideal for an introductory course in Communication Sciences and Disorders. It is highly readable and the case studies presented avoid the dry nature of typical case studies. The book is also comprehensive; it gives a good overview of anatomy, types of disorders, and even touches on Audiological topics. This was the text that we used in my first ever CSD class and introduced me to the field.

It's a great introductory level text. My two favorite things about it are its comprehensiveness and readability.
