Abstract: This book features case studies of ten individuals with acquired neurological disorders. These disorders have implications for speech, language, and communication, but to date they have not been the focus of research 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, 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.
