"Speech-Language Pathology" is the second edition of "Basic Anatomy and Physiology in Speech and Hearing", first published in 1984. This new edition serves as a general introductory text, primarily for undergraduates. Its goal is to bridge the gap between the anatomy and physiology (mechanism and function) and the clinical practice (treatment and habilitation) of speech. It concentrates on fundamentals, and thus also serves as a reference for therapists in the public school setting. This edition includes expanded clinical considerations and references, with the addition of a "self-examination" section at the end of each chapter. This text primarily appeals to college undergraduates in speech-language pathology and audiology courses. It is also appropriate for courses which include an overview of anatomy and physiology, and the clinical impact of speech, hearing, and language disorders. The subject matter in this text has been arranged to facilitate reading concomitant with lecture and reference use.
After the first chapter, the others are arranged in four basic sections: Anatomy (skeletal and muscular systems, presented in outline form); Clinical considerations of physiology (function of the skeletal and muscular systems); Glossary of terms (supplementary to those used in the previous two sections); and, References (presentation of a variety of texts and journals, and citations from major contributions to speech, language, and hearing literature.

Review quote

"...Highly readable and well-organized. I appreciate the outline form in which this very detailed subject is presented. Students will find this format very user friendly. The inclusion of a glossary of terms at the end of each chapter is a very good idea, as is the brief self-quiz to check for understanding. Both of these features will help students to solidify information before moving on to the next topic." --Peggy C. Aggee, Longwood College, Farmville, Virginia
