This comprehensive resource guide was created in response to the requests from practicing speech language pathologists and parents of children with apraxia of speech for information on the nature of this complicated disorder and advice on assessment and treatment methods. Fundamental aspects of the disorder are discussed in depth and different viewpoints regarding apraxia are compared, eliminating the need to track down multiple sources. Detailed practical assessment and treatment guidelines provide speech language pathologists with a framework of how to help children with apraxia and the motivation behind each treatment. Case studies bring material into a real world context.

A major new reference work with entries covering the entire field of communication and speech disorders. A massive reference work on the scale of MITECS (The MIT Encyclopedia of Cognitive Sciences), The MIT Encyclopedia of Communication Disorders will become the standard reference in this field for both research and clinical use. It offers almost 200 detailed entries, covering the entire range of communication and speech disorders in children and adults, from basic science to clinical diagnosis.MITECD is divided into four sections that reflect the standard categories within the field (also known as speech-language pathology and audiology): Voice, Speech, Language, and Hearing. Within each category, entries are organized into three subsections: Basic Science, Disorders, and Clinical Management. Basic Science includes relevant information on normal anatomy and physiology, physics, psychology and psychophysics, and linguistics; this provides a scientific foundation for entries in the other subsections. The entries that appear under Disorders offer information on the definition and characterization of specific disorders, and tools for their identification and assessment. The Clinical Management subsection describes appropriate interventions, including behavioral, pharmacological, surgical, and prosthetic. Because the approach to communication disorders can be quite different for children and adults, many topics include separate entries reflecting this. Although some disorders that are first diagnosed in childhood may persist in some form throughout adulthood, many disorders can have an onset in either childhood or adulthood, and the timing of onset can have many implications for both assessment and intervention. Topics covered in MITECD include cochlear implants for children and adults, pitch perception, tinnitus, alaryngeal voice and speech rehabilitation, neural mechanisms of vocalization, holistic voice therapy techniques, computer-based approaches to children's speech and language disorders, neurogenic mutism, regional dialect, agrammatism, global aphasia, and psychosocial problems associated with communicative disorders.

Working with Interpreters and Translators: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists offers state-of-the-art procedures to conduct interviews, assessments, and conferences with students with limited English language proficiency and their families. As no research base is available in the field of communicative disorders on this specific topic, the information presented in this guide is supported by a critical review of the literature on best practices in interpreting for international conferences and legal and medical fields. Furthermore, the authors' experience working with language interpreters and training professionals as well as graduate students in communicative disorders, makes this a very valuable resource for professionals, interpreters/translators, as well as undergraduate and graduate students. Federal and state laws specify that, if necessary, English-language learners (ELL) need to be assessed in their native language when referred for possible special education. The number of ELL students attending public schools across the nation has increased in the past few decades. There are not enough speech-language pathologists (SLPs) or audiologists who are proficient in the various languages spoken by ELL students--even in Spanish, the most common language spoken by ELL students in the United States. The next best solution is to conduct assessments in collaboration with a trained interpreter/translator. Key features include: * Information and references for the most common languages spoken by ELL students * Discussion of culturally based variables that need to be considered in the process of interviewing and working with linguistically and culturally diverse populations *Description of the roles and responsibilities for individuals who will be collaborating as interpreters and translators with SLPs and audiologists in various contexts, such as interviews, assessments, and various meetings (such as IEPs and IFSPs), as well as suggestions on training individuals in this collaborative process *Review of best practices in speech-language and audiological assessments, both with and without materials in the given language Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such documents, audio, and video) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book. Working with Interpreters and Translators: A Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists is a must-have reference for anyone working with ELL students. Although the process was developed with the pediatric population in mind, much of this information can be applied to older culturally and linguistically diverse populations in need of speech-language and/or hearing services. It will also be useful to professionals working with language interpreters in allied health professions in other countries.
