About This Book

Exceptionally insightful speech-language pathology textbook highlights individual cases to augment learning!

Speech-Language Pathology Casebook by Ryan Branski, Sonja Molfenter, and an impressive array of contributors presents a diverse spectrum of cases covering communication, voice, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Readers are provided with rich and varied narratives underscoring the fact that clinical intervention of speech-language disorders is an art form based on science. Evidence-based assessments and treatments cover a variety of settings including medical inpatient, outpatient, and skilled nursing facility; home health; school; community-based; and private practice.

Eighty cases following a standardized format encompass a wide range of congenital and acquired disorders spanning the age continuum. Each case includes a clinical history and description, evaluations/testing, diagnosis, treatment, outcomes, questions and answers, suggested readings, and references. With invaluable firsthand insights from practitioners, this unique resource enhances the ability to develop effective, patient-informed interventions.

Key Highlights

  • Discussion of problems frequently omitted from typical curricula, but increasingly relevant to contemporary clinical practice, ranging from telepractice to transgender voice modification
  • Speech-related issues in children associated with cleft palate, autism spectrum disorder, stuttering, bilingual language delays, severe intellectual disability, congenital porencephaly, FASD, apraxia, and many others
  • Medical conditions in adults that impact speech-language, such as traumatic brain injury, ALS, right hemisphere disorder, stroke, autoimmune encephalopathy, dementia, Parkinson's disease, autism, and more
  • Videos, audio, bulleted key points, and handy comparative charts provide additional pearls

The detailed case narratives enable speech-language students to connect and apply theory and knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-life clinical practice. Instructors and speech-language pathologists will also benefit from this excellent teaching and clinical reference.
