Overview

Undergraduate communication science and disorder students. ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY FOR SPEECH, LANGUAGE, AND HEARING is a core course for all Speech Pathology and Audiology students. In 2004, 239 colleges and universities offered graduate programs in speech-language pathology that are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Total undergraduate enrollment: 16,397. (Source: CAPCS, June 2006.) Total graduate enrollment: 7,389. (Source: CAPCS, June 2006.)

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Over all the editions of this text, the authors have produced a near perfect balance of 'not too simple, not too complex'." The content areas are of sufficient depth for undergraduate students to be challenged, but not unduly overwhelmed."-Michael Blomgren, Associate Professor, University of Utah
Yaser Al Natour
This is a well-organized survey of anatomy and physiology of speech, language, and hearing. The purpose is to provide a basis for understanding the communication process by relating it to the underlying structures and functions. This book satisfies a need in the field. Students and practitioners of speech pathology and audiology, especially those interested in medical speech language pathology, are the intended audience. The authors did a very good job providing a basis for understanding communication processes through relating them to the specific structures and functions of concern. In terms of content, the book has been simplified to meet the needs of students. I have used this book in teaching an anatomy and physiology class for speech and audiology majors. Students expressed their appreciation of the details provided and the software included. For me, as an instructor, the process of preparing graphs for quizzes and exams was simplified because I had this book available. Margin notes were also helpful. Comparing the current edition to the one I used previously (the expanded edition published in 1997), I find that interesting additions have taken place. Examples are Appendix H and the updated, user-friendlier software. One major area of improvement would be the software. Still, students express the need for clearer images. The black-and-white images were not inviting nor stimulating (e.g., Figure 7-33, p. 317), and then when put on a Power Point slide, the images become even more confusing. Improving the software can be done by using color images and, if possible, three-dimensional images. This would be a great addition to an already pleasant experience. Another area of improvementwould be related to reorganizing the chapters so that each would have its own section of related terminology.

This textbook for students in the speech and hearing sciences is organized around the four classic systems of speech: the respiratory, phonatory, articulatory/resonatory, and nervous systems. Anatomy and physiology concepts are integrated with clear and current clinical information. The included disk contains 52 self-paced lessons as well as quizzes and tests. It automatically records students' scores and monitors progress. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Geared to SLPs

    This is my A&P textbook and I think its really good. The appendices and side notes are very helpful. Having the pictures in color is also nice. I really appreciated that the book is geared to future SLPs. The CDs are NOT mac compatible - this is not stated anywhere.
