Neurology for the Speech-Language Pathologist presents the fundamentals in understanding the nervous system in the context of communication. The book takes into consideration the nervous anatomic systems, such as sensory pathways. The text first introduces the speech-language neurology, and then proceeds to discussing the organization and neural function of the nervous system. Next, the book relates the nervous anatomic systems to language, speech, and hearing. The text also covers clinical speech syndromes and disorders. The book will be most useful to speech pathologists and therapists. Neurologists and neurosurgeons will also greatly benefit from the text.

Understanding the recent science about how therapy changes the brain can empower clinicians to face the challenges of increasingly demanding medical and educational settings. However, many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are unaware of the vast impact new neuroscience research has on clinical practice. Cognitive and Communication Interventions: Neuroscience Applications for Speech-Language Pathologists is a practical guide that informs and enables SLP’s, clinical psychologists, and other therapeutic professionals to use new research to enhance their clinical outcomes. Although based on independent neuroscience principles and research, this unique book is designed to be a readable and scientifically sound clinical guidebook. Written with the busy clinician in mind, this professional resource uses accessible, easy-to-understand language to walk readers through the complexities of neuroscience and provide workable strategies for application. The beginning chapters break down important concepts, such as neuroplasticity, environmental stressors, and connectomics, to create a base of understanding. The middle chapters delve into recent investigations of factors that potentially affect typical brain development, as well as disrupt connectomics. The final chapters provide neuroscience considerations for intervention, including the “What, How, and When” of therapy and other important considerations for individualizing and maximizing outcomes. Throughout the book, clinicians will also find case studies that provide examples of the practical applications of neuroscience research and study questions to improve memory and inference.

Medical Setting Considerations for the Speech-Language Pathologist is the first volume in the “Medical Speech-Language Pathology” book series. The series provides graduate students, clinicians, and clinical researchers with functional, comprehensive material to enhance practice in a medical setting. This first book in the series will foster an appreciation of the unique skill set and knowledge base needed by a medical speech-language pathologist. The chapters contain information applicable to a broad range of medical and rehabilitation settings, while delving deeper into complex topics that merit extra attention, such as neuroimaging methods and medication side effects. Readers will come to appreciate the many roles and responsibilities of the speech-language pathologist in the medical setting, across the continuum of care. They will gain familiarity with broader organizational issues, such as accreditation, billing, and medical team members, as well as the specific clinical populations often encountered in medical settings, such as individuals with Parkinson’s disease, delirium, or tongue cancer. Throughout the book, case studies are used to highlight the role of the medical SLP, and to underscore the remarkably dynamic and complex caseloads encountered by the medical SLP. Medical Setting Considerations for the Speech-Language Pathologist is authored by experienced professionals and content experts who transform the research literature into clinically applicable and digestible information, with the series editors Kristie A. Spencer and Jacqueline Daniels leading the cohort.

Author: B. E. Murdoch
The stimulus for writing this book arose from the author's perception of a lack of available texts which adequately integrate the subjects of neuroanatomy and functional neurology with the practice of speech language pathology. This perception was gained from almost two decades of teaching in the areas of neuroanatomy and acquired neuro logical speech-language disorders to speech pathology students initially at the South Australian College of Advanced Education and, for the past five years, at the University of Queensland. Although a plethora of excellent texts devoted specifically to each of the subjects of neuroanatomy, neurology and aphasiology have been published, few have attemped to integrate these individual subject areas in such a way as to provide a more clear understanding of the neurological bases of clinically recognized forms of aphasia and motor speech disorders. In writing this text, I have attempted to provide a better balance between neuroanatomy-neurology and. speech-language pathology. Relevant areas of neuroanatomy and neurology are introduced and discussed in the context of specific speech and language disorders. In this way, I have aimed at providing a better link between the relevant neuroanatomical and neurological knowledge on the one hand, and specific neurologically based communication disorders on the other, in order to enhance the reader's understanding of the origins, course and prognosis of these disorders. Of course the writing of any book requires the support and encouragement of other people. This text was no exception.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
It is vital to have knowledge of the neuroanatomical structures and functional neurological mechanisms, which are disrupted in neurogenic speech/language, disordered persons in order to understand the speech/language deficits themselves. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the neurological basis of both the clinically recognised forms of aphasia and the various motor speech disorders, in both children and adults. It also covers more recently recognised language disorders, such as Parkinsons and related diseases, right hemisphere damage, closed-head injury, dementia, etc. This is a perfect text for practitioners who need to understand the integration of neuroanatomy and functional neurology with the practice of speech-language pathology.

The clinical fellowship year can be daunting for the unprepared. This survival guide is a compilation of detailed questions, answers, ideas, and stories from my first two years serving as a speech-language pathologist in the skilled nursing facility. Each chapter will take you through a topic that was, in some way, confusing or difficult for me to manage during my CFY. This book touches on the topics of workplace relationships, assessment and treatment, palliative care within and outside of the scope of the speech-language pathologist, and even financial outlooks and career-building strategies. I am no expert; just someone who's been on the road for a little bit, seen the sights, and has a passion for the field. Nothing in this book is a secret, but much of it I didn't know before I started on this journey. If the skilled nursing facility is your first stop on your journey, take a few tools with you. You'll need them to survive!
This book features case studies of ten individuals with acquired neurological disorders.
Author: LOUISE. CUMMINGS
This book features case studies of ten individuals with acquired neurological disorders. These disorders have implications for speech, language, and communication but have not been the focus of research to date in speech-language pathology. Chapters present a brief medical overview of each condition, followed by detailed linguistic analysis. A carefully assembled narrative captures the impact of each neurological disorder on an individual's daily life and social activities. This structured approach, supported by further reading and exercises, gives readers a nuanced understanding of each disorder's clinical presentation and language and communication features and the complex interrelationship between language and communication and cognitive and motor symptoms. The book will be of interest to students of all levels, researchers, and clinicians in speech-language pathology and related disciplines, including neurology, psychiatry, and psychology.
