Overview

Preclinical Speech Science: Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics, and Perception / Edition 2

Preclinical Speech Science: Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics, Perception, now in its second edition, is the text of choice for undergraduate and graduate courses in speech science. Written in a user-friendly style by three distinguished scientists/editors/clinicians who have taught the course to thousands of students at premier educational programs, the text comprehensively covers anatomy, physiology, acoustics, perception, and swallowing. This book helps speech-language pathologists in training understand the science that underpins their work and provides a framework for the evaluation and management of their future clients. It provides all that instructors need to ensure that their students are fully ready for their clinical practicum training.. Describes scientific principles explicitly and in translational terms that emphasize their relevance to clinical practice. Features original, full-color illustrations and artwork designed to be instructive learning tools. Includes clinical scenarios woven into the text to emphasize the relevance of the concepts presented and focus the discussion on humanistic values. Incorporates analogies that aid thinking about processes from different perspectives.
