Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nick Gunnell, MA, CCC/SLP(University of Central Florida)
Description: This book provides a simplified and thorough introduction to the most frequent communication disorders in adults. This update provides an expansive discussion of the etiology, formal assessments, and evidence-based treatment protocols.
Purpose: The intent is to provide a clinically organized book that guides students from understanding the etiology and symptoms of communication disorders to formal assessment and clinical application. What is not clear is why this third edition is necessary.
Audience: Designed for undergraduate students as an introduction to communication disorders in adults, the book also provides suggested clinical assessment and treatment protocols. Beyond the undergraduate level, it could be used as a resource for clinicians because it is so well organized.
Features: This is an excellent introduction into the study of adult language and motor speech disorders. Specifically, it focuses on the most prevalent of the adult neuropathologies detailing their etiology and symptoms, and reviews recommended assessment protocols and evidence-based approaches to treatment. Each chapter concludes with case studies fostering the student's ability to assess information and determine application. In addition, each book includes an access code for comprehensive online resources. Readers will find that this is not just an academic reference to be placed on the shelf, but an ongoing resource to guide them in both theory and practice.
Assessment: This is a valuable book that is clearly in a class by itself. I appreciate the simplicity with which the information is presented as well as the detail used in guiding clinicians to relevant formal assessments and evidence-based treatment recommendations. Providing an overview of the most prevalent neuropathologies seems appropriate at the undergraduate level. However, the authors do not clearly indicate what sets this edition apart from the prior one, even though it has been 12 years since the last edition.
