Overview

Communication Sciences and Disorders, A Contemporary Evidence-Based Perspective, 3/e

by Laura M. Justice and Erin E. Redle

A clinical, case-based approach to communication sciences and disorders.

Communication Sciences and Disorders, 3/e, introduces students to the field through clinicians, patients and families. Rich with examples, the first part covers foundational concepts of development, anatomy, physiology, augmentative communication and complex communication. Following these foundations, the second part highlights inherited and acquired disorders affecting children and older adults. A new chapter features multicultural topics, while an expanded chapter delves into advancements in assessment and intervention. Strong themes of literacy weave throughout. Expanded cases keep student interest with evaluation and treatment sections.

  • New Chapter 5 discusses multicultural topics impacting the field such as the interactions among culture, communication ability and communication disability.
  • More on literacy development and dyslexia appears in the reading disabilities section.
  • Revised Chapter 6 features recent evidence-based practices in assessment and intervention laying a foundation for concepts such as psychometric terminology categories of common tests and measures, and popular intervention approaches.
  • More on technology and its use in assessment and treatment appears in this edition.
  • New opportunities to build and extend reader knowledge with new case examples, “Discussion Points”, and “In the Clinic” features.
