The leading text for courses in clinical phonology has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the most current and up-to-date information in the field. This classic text does not prescribe a single approach to phonological disorders but rather presents an eclectic perspective on the nature, assessment, and treatment of this communication impairment. The addition of a third author, Peter Flipsen Jr., a highly-recognized scholar in the area of clinical phonology, brings important new information for readers and fresh perspectives to the text.

The sixth edition shines once again, featuring:

  • An entire section devoted to the classification of speech sound disorders.
  • The latest information on Childhood Apraxia of Speech–including a detailed discussion of the 2007 ASHA position statement.
  • A comprehensive chapter on Normal Development has been revised and updated.
  • A full section on measuring clinical change set within the context of evidence-based practice.
  • An outstanding summary of phonological acquisition information written by leading researcher in this area, Sharynne McLeod.
  • Comprehensive coverage of dialects and phonologic characteristics of speakers with first languages other than English–prepared by leading authorities in this area, Brian Goldstein and Aquiles Iglesias.
  • A completely updated chapter on phonological awareness–co-authored by Laura Justice, Gail Gillon, and C. Melanie Schuele.
  • A fully comprehensive and current review of etiological variables, thorough discussion of the assessment of phonologic disorders, and an updated review of broad-based intervention methodologies.
  • Chapter introductions, summaries, charts, and graphs throughout the book that will guide learning and aid students’ comprehension.

Covers normal aspects of articulation, early & later phonological development, assessment procedures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robin D Susser, MS (St. Petersburg College)
Description: This classic textbook provides a comprehensive look at clinical phonology and the nature, assessment, and treatment of speech sound disorders. This update of the 2004 edition has been revised with up-to-date information and has added a new coauthor, Peter Flipsen, Jr., who brings a new perspective.
Purpose: This edition of this valuable textbook provides a foundation of knowledge of clinical phonology and speech sound disorders and features reorganized and updated information in each of the chapters.
Audience: Geared toward students in the field of speech-language pathology, it would be useful as a textbook for classes in articulation and phonological disorders and intervention at colleges and universities. However, it is also an excellent resource for everyone in the field of speech-language pathology, from emerging clinicians to experienced professionals.
Features: Among the two new chapters is the first one, which introduces readers to the study of clinical phonology, its related terminology, and basic information about speech sounds and the nature of speech sound disorders. Chapter three, reorganized and written by a new contributing author, Sharynne McLeod, presents a comprehensive review of normal speech sound acquisition and includes numerous tables summarizing pertinent studies. Chapter four, which examines classification and factors related to speech sound disorders, has been expanded with a new section devoted to the question of classification of both organically based speech sound disorders and disorders of unknown etiology. This chapter also covers childhood apraxia of speech, including a discussion of ASHA's new position statement on this subject.
Assessment: This updated and expanded edition of a classic textbook provides a foundation of knowledge for speech-language pathologists working with children with speech sound disorders. It offers a broad perspective of clinical phonology with a variety of approaches in the assessment and remediation of speech sound disorders. It is very well organized with chapter introductions, summaries, charts, graphs, and chapter questions to enhance learning and comprehension, making it a useful resource for the SLP student as well as for clinicians working with children with speech sound disorders.
This edition (last, 1993) presents a comprehensive review of information important to the study of clinical phonology, including an introduction to normal aspects of articulation and phonological development, phonological disorders, assessment and remediation of phonological disorders, instrumentation available for acoustical analyses, and phonology as it relates to language and dialectal variations.
