Christy L. Ludlow and Raymond D. Kent's text is a definitive reference for methods of measurement in speech-language sciences and disorders. It consists of the most up-to-date information on areas of measurement such as acoustics, aerodynamics, neurophysiology, kinematics, and functional and structural neuroimaging. As information on measurement in the field of speech-language-voice and swallowing is scattered across many disciplines, Ludlow and Kent have filled this void with their comprehensive text. Research clinicians in speech language sciences and disorders, practicing clinicians, professors, and students will all find this book to be incredibly valuable for its wide scope of information and clear approach to modern methods of measurement.

This comprehensive book explores the many facets of measuring voice quality. Voice quality is a concept that is widely recognized and applied, yet very difficult to define in a way that is universally satisfactory. A number of experts consider such topics as perceptual assessment, instrumental (objective) assessment, and various voice states and disorders. Contributors with a wide scope of experience present perspectives and ideas on how voice quality can be assessed with improved validity and reliability.

Bringing together the expertise of leading research practitioners in the field, the second edition of Clinical Management of Sensorimotor Speech Disorders is an up-to-date reference for the underlying theory and the basic principles of assessment and treatment. This book provides a solid foundation in the conceptual framework essential for classifying and differentiating disorders according to clinical categories. It covers the theory underlying measurement strategies including acoustic, kinematic, aerodynamic, and electromyographic techniques, and guides the reader through treatments for each disorder. New in this edition is a comprehensive section with in-depth coverage of the diseases, syndromes, and pathologic conditions which are accompanied by sensorimotor speech disorders. These chapters provide concise descriptions of the disease and its signs and symptoms, neuropathology, epidemiology, and etiology. Each chapter goes on to present the speech impairment associated with the disorder and its signs and symptoms, etiology, neuropathology, associated cognitive, linguistic, and communicative signs and symptoms, special diagnostic considerations, treatment, and key references.Features: Clear articulation of theoretical issues provides a strong foundation for the clinical management of the dysarthrias, apraxia, and speech problems secondary to hearing loss New chapter on neurogenic fluency disorders Extensive discussion of neuropathologic conditions that cause sensorimotor speech disorders Authoritative and comprehensive, this expanded edition will prove to be the reference of choice for students in speech-language pathology programs as well as clinicians and researchers.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Speech Science: An Integrated Approach to Theory and Clinical Practice, 4th Edition continues and sharpens the author’s focus on the relationship between the scientific study of speech production and perception and the application of the material to the effective evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. In it, theory and clinical application combine to present a well-rounded, accessible, relevant look at the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. Theoretical material is presented first, followed by clinical application chapters highlighting specific disorders. The organization of chapters in the new edition now more closely follow the speech subsystems approach, beginning with basic acoustics, and moving on to the respiratory system, phonatory system, articulatory/resonatory system, auditory system, and nervous system. As in previous editions, the book concludes with information on classic and current models and theories of speech production and perception. New and revised full color illustrations and larger spectrograms supplement the concepts presented by clearly depicting scientific and anatomical material and ensuring understanding of the links between the underlying science and human communicative behavior.
