The book is a collection of research study essays that survey cultural aspects of communication disorders. These essays cover cultural diversity issues, communication disorders and their development, and clinical issues. I feel that the book has good content, but lacks sufficient research on older people and leaves many questions for the reader or reviewer. The book contains good information about culture and communication disorders. The book discusses five ethnic groups and the background of each. I think that this information is helpful to Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists to know and consider. In addition, the book contained well-written essays about how communication disorders develop in different cultures. I feel that the information in the last chapters is very useful to the therapist. On the contrary, I think this book is lacking in some areas such as it focuses on children, while more sufficient research on older people needs to be prepared. This research is needed so that Speech Pathologists and Audiologists can treat adults more appropriately. Overall, the book leaves the reader with good information but at the same time longing for ample attention on adults and wondering about how the different cultures react to certain aspects of communication and treatment.Was this review helpful?
