Speech and Voice Science Workbook is an excellent new companion to the textbook Speech and Voice Science, Fourth Edition. Divided into chapters that correspond with Speech and Voice Science, this workbook is designed to provide a valuable tool for students to expand their understanding of this challenging course subject. The workbook is intended to be used for student review, self-study and exam preparation, to highlight areas of confusion, to learn new concepts, to connect ideas, and to spark new questions and thoughtful discussions.

There are four different types of sections which appear throughout the workbook: Foundational Knowledge, Conceptual Integration, and Clinical Application questions, and TRY IT! Activities.  Each section is tailored to hone different skill sets and enhance comprehension of the topics as follows:

  • Foundational Knowledge questions assess students’ basic knowledge gained from the textbook and highlight areas they need to review
  • Conceptual Integration questions prompt students to delve deeper into the material and interrelate diverse information for understanding, rather than memorization
  • Clinical Application questions explore the usefulness of the material provided in the textbook to answer the common student query “How does speech and voice science relate to the field of communication sciences and disorders?”
  • TRY IT! activities are designed to promote experiential learning and allow students to explore concepts and acquire new insights

Key Features

  • Over 1,000 questions are included on a wide variety of topics
  • Informative answers are provided to over 45 questions on the 14 Clinical Cases presented in the textbook
  • Numerous original figures and spectrograms are used to illustrate questions, reinforce key concepts, and assess students’ understanding
  • A variety of question formats, including multiple choice, true/false, fill-in, matching, figure identification, drawing, and short answer
  • A focus on integrating knowledge for deeper understanding
  • Spiral-bound format so students can easily write in the workbook
