Book Description

1 July 1993 1879105926 978-1879105928
A clinical text on speech articulation disorders in children, this book addresses the concepts of dysarthria, apraxia, and motor disability. Following an introductory chapter that includes thorough definitions of dysarthria, apraxia, and phonologic disability, it covers the general scope of speech disorders in children, a neurobehavioural model of speech disorders in children, assessment strategies, clinical profiles, treatment strategies, and a concluding summary on clinical research efforts and evaluation and treatment strategies. The appendices include: a description of clinical research protocols with normative data where available; a review of motor, speech, and language evaluation and treatment tools, and clinical exercises for treatment planning. This book should be of interest to speech-language pathologists in clinical and school settings, as well as undergraduate and graduate students in speech-language programmes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A balanced overview of a controversial topic 5 Mar 2000
The focus is on developmental dysarthria and developmental verbal dyspraxia. There is a good scholarly treatment of historical aspects, and of the neuropsychological background, and the author deals head-on with the controversies about terminology and concepts in a fair-minded way. At times the organisation was less than optimal, and as a reader I felt Ihad to hop about from one topic to another, with some repetition too. But overall, I liked this book and found it provided a good research review of a difficult topic. I think it would be enjoyed by clinicians as well as academics. The author's clinical interests and expertise shine through, with case vignettes illustrating particular points and plenty of suggestions on assessment and intervention, so you get a feeling of what the children are like.
