Description

This text offers comprehensive coverage of a wide range of concepts related to articulation and phonology. The text’s strong, clinical emphasis along with the variety of helpful learning aids makes this text ideal for understanding critical topics.

 

In this comprehensive fourth edition of Articulatory and Phonological Impairments: A Clinical Focus, a range of topics are covered including, an overview of phonetic transcription and diacritics used to document disordered speech, several theoretical models, including newer nonlinear frameworks, phonological development, and relevant diagnostic and therapeutic suggestions for special populations discussed in detail. Additionally, the application of theoretical principles to practical examples creates a bridge for students between conceptual learning and the understanding of principles based on their application. These topics, coupled with the learning aids throughout the text, strengthen the conceptual framework and through application, demonstrate that the student has understood specific principles.

 

A large portion of the text is devoted to specific assessment and treatment details of articulatory and phonological disorders including a section on childhood apraxia of speech, cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, mental disability, hearing impairments, acquired dysarthrias, and apraxia of speech.  These topics are encompassed in a clinical framework which continues to provide practical examples and the application of principles to real-life situations.

Features

·   The wide range of topics provide a solid basis for a comprehensive course and the application of principles to clinical examples provides flexibility for use as discussion topics, course assignments, or for developing further clinical applications.

 

·   Comprehensive coverage of phonetic (motor-based) and phonemic approaches gives readers a broad view of different treatment options and shows the clinical applications of the strategies.

 

·   Case studies demonstrate a step-by-step process of multiple assessment strategies focusing on phonetic and phonemic analyses.

 

·   Content on regional and ethnic dialects, as well as English as a second language is included, complete with information on the Telsur Project at the University of Pennsylvania and African American Vernacular English.

 

·   Extensive learning aids including case studies, website references, further readings, critical thinking activities, and test questions at the end of each chapter give students the tools they need to assess and improve their understanding of the chapter content.

 

·   Clinical applications exemplify discussion topics in each chapter to help readers get a better understanding of the material and to aid in the development of clinical insights.

New to this Edition

·   Chapter 1 has been completely revised to include more basic concepts such as communication, speech, and language, as well as the subdivisions of language, providing a more basic foundation for understanding later concepts.

 

·   A new section–English as a Second Language: Considerations for Phonological Development in Children has been added to Chapter 5, emphasizing this current, important topic.

 

·   A new Chapter 7, Dialects and English as a Second Language expands on sections that were previously in Chapter 6, providing readers with a substantial knowledge base to meet this growing area of practice.

 

·   Chapter 9: Therapy for Phonetic Errors, has been thoroughly reorganized, using easy-to-read tables and flow charts to summarize information and make the therapy ideas for many errors much clearer.

 

·   Several new therapy approaches–Complexity Approach, Phonological Awareness Training, Morphosyntax Intervention, and connecting phonology and semantics in Vocabulary Intervention–are discussed in Chapter 10, providing up-to-date therapy models that can be used to treat children with phonological disorders or concurrent language difficulties.

 

·   The section on childhood apraxia of speech in Chapter 11 has been expanded to include the 2007 definition from the Ad Hoc Committee on Childhood Apraxia of Speech and the symptoms and research from the technical report and position statement from ASHA, 2007.

 

·   Guidelines and definitions provided by the American Speech Language Hearing Association for establishing communication, language, articulation, and phonological disorders are included in Chapter 1.

 

·   New tables summarizing information have been added to several of the chapters and add to the readability of the text.

 

·   Clinical Exercises in each chapter ask readers to apply the chapter’s information to clinical examples and show how the concepts are relevant in a clinical setting.

 

·   Bibliographical references have been expanded to include new topics and more current research throughout the text.
