A standout in the field, this book is comprehensive in scope and provides useful and practical information that practicing clinicians and those new to the practice will find valuable. This book is a practical, easy to follow, and informative guide for the purpose of teaching students and new clinicians in the area of acquired language disorders. Beginning with a review of the basics related to brain-behavior relationships as well as pertinent medical terminology for individuals who have neurological impairment, the format is easy to follow. An excellent tool for instructors, a supplementary disc with more than 500 ready-to-use slides is included for teaching purposes. Major assessment tools and treatment programs are also presented. Each disorder is introduced in a case-based format and includes a diagnostic profile along with treatment considerations and a functional analysis of the case. Instructors will appreciate the critical thinking/learning activities that are provided for each case. To facilitate learning, the authors introduce a new model, The Acquired Language Disorders (ALD) Target Model, which graphically depicts characteristics and severity of the communication impairment and cognitive involvement for each case.
