In this current and well-organized text, Plante and Beeson provide an introduction to the field of Communication Disorders that engages students' interests in professional practice and welcomes them into the major.

It is complemented by a focus on clinical illustration of normal and disordered speech, language, and hearing. The text presents a lifespan perspective on disorders from infancy through geriatrics, covering both normal development and disorders. Each chapter reflects insights gained from first-hand clinical, research, and teaching experience across a variety of clinical populations. Throughout the book, professionals in the field address what they find engaging about their careers. The focus of the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology are conveyed through clinical cases, discussion of professional issues, and vignettes of professional interactions in a variety of work settings.
