Speech Science provides an integration of scientific material on the acoustics and physiology of speech production and perception with state-of-the art instrumental techniques used in clinical practice.

This book enables the user to easily make the connections between scientific theory and clinical management of communication disorders. This explicit linkage means that students find the theoretical information meaningful, less intimidating, and more easily accessible. Each chapter demonstrates this connection by first presenting the theoretical information and then applying the principles to assessment and management issues. This comprehensive text, which incorporates principles of speech sound production and perception, relevant anatomy and physiology, and current technology, is both student- and instructor- friendly. The material is broken into small units that are easy for students to grasp, with subsequent integration of units into larger domains.

The Instructor's Manual provides made-to-order exercises that can be used in a laboratory or classroom setting, essay and multiple-choice examination questions, outlines for lectures that can be made into overheads, additional readings, and individual and group projects.
