Brain damage due to stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), progressive neurological disease, and other etiologies is extremely common worldwide. Neurogenic language disorders that result from the illnesses, accidents, or progressive diseases that cause brain damage can negatively impact an individual’s communicative and cognitive well-being. This thoughtful text provides speech-language pathologists and related health care professionals with a comprehensive examination of the concepts and procedures surrounding the management of adult neurogenic disorders. Information is provided on the major disorders including aphasia, traumatic brain injury, right hemisphere disorders, and dementia and assessment procedures and treatment approaches are discussed. In addition, clinical issues--both theoretical and applied--are highlighted throughout the book, making this an excellent choice for anyone working with neurogenic language disorders.
