Foundations of Communication Sciences & Disorders

Front Cover
Thomson Delmar Learning, 2008 - Education - 920 pages
An exciting new full color textbook, this is the foundational text for introducing concepts in communication sciences and disorders. Written in accessible, engaging and caring language, it is also rooted in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's "Big Nine" knowledge and skill areas. Units provide cohesive "big picture" introductions and conclusions, while individual chapters focus on key information in smaller, manageable packages. But this text goes beyond expectations for an introductory text and explores the emotional and social effects of disorders to help readers truly understand the profession. Visually engaging with colorful boxes, figures, and photos and loaded with special features to enrich the learning experience, this is the total package. Benefits: * Units open with introductions and close with summaries, references, and weblinks, providing a unifying framework for understanding the detailed information in the chapters. * Numerous features include sidebars of detailed information, application questions to drive critical thinking, personal stories to show the reality of the profession, and more. * Multicultural considerations are woven throughout the text. * End of chapter questions are broken into knowledge/comprehension, application and analysis/synthesis questions, with answers provided in the instructor package. * Includes an innovative free CD-ROM with games and interactive activities.
