4.0 out of 5 stars A balanced overview of a controversial topic, 5 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Developmental Motor Speech Disorders: Phonologic Disability, Dysarthria and Apraxia (Worldwatch Paper) (Paperback)
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.
