The concise, easy-to-understand Neurology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, 6th Edition provides students and clinicians with a practical guide for the study and understanding of neurology in speech-language pathology (SLP). Correlated with clinical syndromes and diseases seen in SLP, it gives you a solid understanding of the nervous system, including: development of the nervous system, organization of the brain, protective mechanisms, descending motor and ascending sensory pathways, and cranial nerves. New content, case studies, and a strong clinical focus make this new edition essential as you move into practice.

    • The perfect reader-friendly introduction to the neurology of speech and language
    • Emphasizes the neurological mechanisms involved in communication disorders in children and adults
    • A new two-color design enhances chapter organization, and the larger size offers a better image presentation with convenient lay-flat reading.
    • Approximately 225 illustrations – nearly three times that of the previous edition - are highlighted with color to clarify this complex area of study.
    • Improved organization enhances understanding by following a logical flow of information, with speech- and language-specific chapters following a natural progression that more clearly delineates the adult and pediatric content.
    • A new chapter, “Central Language Mechanism and Learning,” expands the information about how the brain learns - a natural way to introduce language disorders and provide a solid foundation for study.
    • More information on pediatric syndromes and disorders reflects an increased emphasis on this area within neurology.
    • New case studies in the clinically oriented chapters provide students with realistic clinical applications.
    • Key vocabulary highlighted within chapters and each term is defined in a handy back-of-book glossary.
    • Evolve Learning Resources give students and instructors access to a comprehensive suite of learning, communication, and organization tools, including WebLinks, Tip Sheets, Checklists, Test Banks, lecture slides, Image Collections, Instructor's Manuals, Teaching Tips, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), and more.
