Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elizabeth Burroughs, PhD (Bowling Green State University)
Description: This book, the fifth in the Neurogenic Communication Disorders Series edited by Leonard LaPointe, is a manual of treatment activities for mild-to-moderate head injured individuals and contains helpful treatment-related information.
Purpose: The book was designed to fill a void in the area of published treatment materials for mild-to-moderate head injured individuals. It contains information and treatment exercises for both communicative and cognitive disorders. Exercises are appropriate for clients from adolescence to adulthood.
Audience: The book is intended for speech-language pathologists who practice in the area of head injury. It would also be a valuable resource for students in clinical training programs. The authors, speech-language pathologists who specialize in treating head-injured clients, draw upon their own experience in compiling this book.
Features: The book includes several appendixes that contain letters for clinical practice, sample questionnaire forms, information on standardized testing, and sample reports. This is very helpful information and is well presented. The exercises cover treatment of attention, memory, word retrieval and thought formulation, information processing, and executive impairments. Compensatory strategies for these deficits are also included. Unlike many other treatment manuals, there is considerable information regarding the actual nature of the deficits and their functional implications in this book.
Assessment: This is an outstanding treatment manual. It presents solid information regarding the deficits associated with mild-to-moderate head injury. The treatment exercises are well constructed and functional. Clinicians working with mild-to-moderate head injured clients would definitely find this a useful resource.
