Cognition and Acquired Language Disorders: An Information Processing Approach
Richard K. Peach
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2011
Organized by cognitive processes, "Cognition and Acquired Language Disorders: An Information Processing Approach" focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and management of cognitive-communication disorders. Current, evidence-based information describes normal cognitive processing for communication and the way in which cognition breaks down to produce communication disorders in a variety of acquired neurologic conditions. Its process-oriented approach includes not only the neurological conditions caused by stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury, but those related to tumor, infection, degenerative diseases, and multiple strokes. While other speech-language pathology texts limit their coverage of disorders to aphasia, expert authors Richard Peach and Lewis Shapiro go beyond that with detailed discussions of many other cognitive-communication disorders.
