For courses in Articulation and Phonological Disorders
This comprehensive book ties strong academic foundations directly to their clinical application for speech/language therapists working with speech sound disorders. Each chapter presents tools to help readers bridge the gap between theoretical issues and clinical applications by presenting Clinical Applications, Clinical Exercises, Case Studies, and a section called Think Critically, which asks students to further apply specific clinical concepts, and, at the end of each chapter, Test Yourself multiple choice questions, which are ideal for review and assessment of the knowledge presented in the chapters, and Further Readings to allow readers to continue to expand their knowledge.
The 5th Edition of Articulation and Phonology in Speech Sound Disorders reflects the current use of the term “speech sound disorder,” an umbrella term for what was previously noted as articulation- and phonemic-based disorders. Also included is an in-depth review of the phonotactics of American English; increased focus on topics which have gained recognition with the field; an expanded chapter on the Treatment of Phonemic-Based Speech Sound Disorders (Chapter 10); an updated chapter on Speech Sound Disorders in Selected populations; and the addition of several videos to each chapter which support the content of the chapter and allow more clinical and transcription exercise for students.
