What are communication disorders? How are they identified, assessed and treated?

This introductory textbook presents the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders, including specific language impairment, dysarthria, apraxia of speech, aphasia and stuttering. Covering clinical features, diagnosis and treatment, the book is an indispensable resource for students of linguistics, and speech and language therapy.

Communication Disorders also:
- includes clinical linguistic data throughout to illustrate specific features of communication disorders
- discusses disorders often neglected in introductory books, such as glossectomy and gender dysphoria
- contains in-text references to a companion website which has colour photographs, audio and video files, and 200 self-test questions
- provides exercises with answers, key point boxes, case studies, suggested readings and a glossary

Product Description


"Communication Disorders will be a valuable text for all students and professionals who work with people who have communication difficulties. The book provides an overview of current research with illustrative case studies and data. Readers also gain access to a website of resources linked to exercises to consolidate learning." Karen Bryan, Sheffield Hallam University, UK 
"This book is a must have for anyone teaching or studying in the field of Communication Disorders. The exercises both in the book and online allow students to immediately apply learned concepts to real clinical scenarios. This accessible yet comprehensive text provides much-needed exposure to the entire range of complex diagnoses students will face clinically, and the professionals they will work with daily." Kathleen Scaler Scott, Misericordia University, USA
"Cummings presents a comprehensive overview of the field of communication disorders in children and adults that is a treat to read both for students and for the general public. She starts from a theoretical model of speech and language production and comprehension and nicely fits each of the described defects into this model in a clear style and with many examples on the accompanying website as illustration. This book is an asset to the field of speech and language pathology." Roelien Bastiaanse, University of Groningen, The Netherlands
"Written in an easy to read style, this book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of communication disorders, including topics only partially covered elsewhere. An excellent reference text for students, clinicians and researchers in speech language pathology and related professions". Bruce Murdoch, University of Queensland, Australia
