Overview

Communication Sciences and Disorders: From Science to Clinical Practice is an excellent introductory text for undergraduate students enrolled in their first course in communication sciences and disorders. Written by experts in the field, this text contains basic information about speech disorders that are related to impairments in articulation, voice, and fluency; language disorders in children and adults; and hearing disorders that cause conductive and sensorineural hearing losses. It includes basic information on the speech, language, and hearing sciences and practical information about assessment and intervention practices. Unlike some other introductory text books, this book also includes chapters on multicultural issues, deafness, dysarthria, and dysphagia.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Ann Wilson, B.S.(George Washington University)
Description: This cursory look at the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology covers the key points of several domains that a professional in this field might encounter in later academic programs and then a career. This new edition includes a different organization, updates, and new author contributions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a first glance at the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. The book assumes that readers have very little prior knowledge about the field and that they will take more in-depth courses on these topics should they pursue a career in speech-pathology or audiology.
Audience: It is written for students who are interested in the field of speech-language pathology or audiology. It is appropriate for this audience, and the book would likely be useful for an introductory course.
Features: The book provides basic information about a career in speech-language pathology or audiology, generally discussing job responsibilities, scopes of practice, governing organizations, and ethical considerations in the field. It also covers different populations served and etiologies/disorders within those populations. The book is well organized and includes a CD-ROM with supplemental material. Learning objectives begin each chapter with review questions at the end, and a glossary lists key terms. It may be overwhelming for a student who is first learning about the field, but the book is a great initial resource..
Assessment: This is a good addition to the literature that provides a solid introduction to the field and scopes of practice for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. Its coverage of the different areas is brief, but it is a useful and thorough overview of the different domains.
