An innovative textbook and course notebook in one resource!

A Coursebook on Aphasia and Other Neurogenic Language Disorders, Fifth Edition is a textbook for courses in aphasia and other neurogenic communication disorders. It is organized in a unique and interactive “coursebook” format that divides pages into columns with written information next to columns with a space for note taking. This allows instructors to make lecture notes and students to write class notes on the right half of each page of the text.

The Coursebook offers a comprehensive description and critical review of basic and applied research on aphasia, right hemisphere disorder (RHD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and dementia—the four major language and communication disorders associated with neurological pathologies. The relationship between the brain and language, major features of aphasia and other disorders, their assessment, and treatment have been described in streamlined and clinician-friendly language. Critical review of theories, assessment, and treatment research helps speech-language pathologists distinguish valid from the questionable in the professional and scientific literature. All assessment and treatment chapters give an outline of comprehensive and practical procedures, integrating current practices the clinicians might readily use.

New to the Fifth Edition

  • Part I has been restructured under the heading, “Brain and Language” to describe the neuroanatomical bases of language and language impairments associated with neuropathological variables. The chapter on neurodiagnostics has been updated to include a variety of surgical, radiological, and imaging procedures that help students understand the relation between the brain structure and function and their involvement in language production and comprehension.
  • Part II has been reorganized into three chapters on aphasia. Chapter 3 offers a comprehensive review of aphasia prevalence, definition, and classification. Newer perspectives on intraoperative cortical brain mapping and alternative classification of aphasia based on recent research on the dual stream hypotheses related to brain and language have been reviewed with critical evaluation to help the clinicians. Chapters 4 and 5 on assessment and treatment of aphasia offer a more comprehensive review of established and newer procedures. The chapter on treatment is expanded to include telerehab, drug treatment, brain stimulation, and technologically based interventions. All major language intervention techniques are reviewed with outlined recommendations for the clinicians.
  • Part III on RHD consists of two chapters which have been revised to reflect current terminology, research, and clinical practice issues. Sections on neglect, deficit awareness, social communication, and abstract language intervention have been updated.
  • Part IV offers the most recent research on TBI rehabilitation. Research on teaching compensatory strategies, group therapy, community reentry has been updated with clinical recommendations.
  • Part V’s two chapters on dementia include new information on changing incidence and prevalence patters of dementia, infectious and rapidly progressive dementias, frontotemporal dementias, primary progressive aphasias, and HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders.
  • In addition to the above content updates, customizable PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors are available on a PluralPlus companion website.
