Overview

This innovative book is the definitive core text for graduate courses covering cognitively based communicative disorders. For the first time, instructors have a resource that provides the current state of knowledge on the normal cognitive processes that support communication and the impact that deficits in these cognitive domains may have on language and communication. In a single source, a renowned group of contributors present information on the cognitive processes of attention, memory, and executive functioning, along with chapters on right hemisphere disorders, Alzheimer disease and related disorders, and traumatic brain injury.

  • Provides a comprehensive review of theoretical and applied research on the cognitive processes of attention, memory and executive function
  • Identifies the unique cognitive communication deficits associated with right hemisphere damage, the dementias, and traumatic brain injury
  • Demonstrates the synergy among cognitive supports for communication and shows the impact of cognitive deficits on communication
  • Offers practical information on clinical management
