Adult Neurogenic Language Disorders: Assessment and Treatment. A Comprehensive Ethnobiological Approach
Joan C. Payne
Details: 392 pages, B&W, Softcover, 7" x 10"
Often, books on neurogenic language disorders view individuals with these disorders as a homogeneous group--ethnically, culturally, and linguistically. Adult Neurogenic Language Disorders: Assessment and Treatment. A Comprehensive Ethnobiological Approach, Second Edition examines how the country's ever-changing demographics require sensitivity and competency in clinicians treating individuals from diverse backgrounds, and also how those demographics relate to health disparities.
As in the previous edition, this second edition addresses the three key disorders that affect adults: language/cognitive disorders associated with dementia, language/cognitive disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, and aphasia and right-hemisphere disorders.
This new edition includes updated and expanded information on the following topics:
- Types, prevalence, and assessment of neurogenic language disorders
- Educating and counseling patients and their families
- New technologies and new therapies available for treatment
- Clinician resources with literature and Internet sources
Another new feature to this edition is the companion website, which provides PowerPoint lectures with illustrations for each chapter, a total of 100 multiple-choice questions, and associated instructor answer keys.
Several pedagogical features are also included in this text:
- Study questions at the end of each chapter
- Illustrations of site(s) of lesions, abnormal cell inclusions, and other neuropathologies in types of dementia, neuropathologies of head trauma, and stroke
- Reference tables that compare the dementias, aphasias, and traumatic brain injuries and characteristics of associated language/cognitive disorders
- Updated glossary of terms and updated references
This much-needed text illustrates the impact of cultural and ethnic diversity in neurogenic language disorders on medical speech-language pathology caseloads.
