Here is the completely updated third edition of the classic text on aphasia, covering key developments in treating language disruptions caused by stroke and other types of brain damage or trauma. From the latest neurobiological aspects, to social and group models of intervention and rehabilitation, this book is all-inclusive. The text begins with the primary types of aphasia and goes on to cover pathophysiology, nature and differentiating features, evaluation, and treatment principles. Blending traditional approaches to aphasia impairment with current World Health Organization models, and including contributions by some of the leading experts in the field, this book is a must for speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, and rehabilitation specialists. It is also ideal as an undergraduate or graduate text, and has been used by countless students as the authoritative sourcebook on treating aphasia and related neurogenic disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael J. Bamdad, MA, CCC-SLP(George Washington University)
Description: This book reviews and summarizes information on neurogenic language disorders. The number of topics discussed is quite comprehensive. Chapters are brief, succinct, and to the point.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose is to educate readers about the array of cognitive-linguistic disorders, particularly aphasia. This is a very worthwhile objective, and it has been clearly met by all contributors.
Audience: It is written for all those affected by, or who work with those affected by, aphasia and related neurogenic language disorders. The author is a highly credible authority.
Features: The book covers the various types of aphasias. Then, chapters covering various cognitive-linguistic deficiencies are reviewed, including dementia and traumatic brain injury. One chapter presents a nice review of neuroimaging and how it applies to studying aphasia.
Assessment: This is an extremely high quality text. The contributing authors have successfully reviewed all pertinent areas on this topic. This is an excellent resource for practitioners. I particularly enjoyed seeing a separate chapter on pragmatics, which is so often overlooked as a key deficit area in many of our patients. This book is very useful.
From the Publisher
Overall, this book is a well-organized resource providing the reader with up-to-date information.-Canadian Jounral of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology
