Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jennifer Elaine Speer, M.A.(George Washington University)
Description: This review of the basic elements of anatomy and physiology of essential systems of speech, swallowing, and hearing is intended for speech-language pathology assistant (SLPA) students.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a general overview of anatomy and physiology of the systems of communication, within a clinical framework, keeping the person in mind rather than just the sum of anatomical parts. These objectives are relevant to the field of SLPA, and the objectives are met.
Audience: The book is at an appropriate level for SLPA students and it covers the basic information important for establishing a framework when entering the field. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book covers basic anatomical terms, anatomy and physiology of respiration, phonation, articulation, resonation, and hearing, as well as a brief overview of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. It does an excellent job of covering the basic information in these areas while keeping it at a very understandable level for students who have likely not been exposed to anatomy and physiology. Illustrations and photography are used well to help students visualize the difficult anatomical landmarks, orientations, etc. An informational DVD is included as a learning supplement, which allows for multimodal study of the material. The one shortcoming is that there are no color illustrations or photography, which would at times be helpful to distinguish between anatomical landmarks being discussed.
Assessment: This overview of the basic elements of anatomy and physiology of speech, swallowing and hearing systems is written at a moderately simplistic level for students who are just beginning their studies of communication sciences. Though the book does not contain information that is vastly different from other books in the field of speech-language pathology, the level of complexity of the information is geared more appropriately for students working to become speech-language pathology assistants.

Meet the Author

J. Anthony (Tony) Seikel, Ph.D., is professor of communication sciences and disorders at Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. His research interests center on the relationship of pathology to acoustics and perception, as well as improving pedagogy through technology. He has recently been studying the relationship between oromyofunctional disorders and oropharyngeal dysphagia. He earned his B.S. in Speech and Hearing from Phillips University, his M.A. in Speech Pathology from Wichita State University, and a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Kansas.

Douglas W. King, Ph.D., was a professor within the basic medical program at Washington State University until his death in 2001. He was greatly loved by his students and fellow faculty, and had set up a scholarship program in anatomy for students with diabetes.
