Introduction to Communication Disorders: A Life Span Perspective, Second Edition, is a comprehensive overview of the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology written in an interesting and highly readable manner. This text catalogs and discusses each disorder with an emphasis on how the disorder impacts the individual. It serves as a foundation by providing many viewpoints for the introductory student, offering personal stories from people with communication disorders, and examining the field from a life span perspective. In addition, the best models of good practice and approaches for assessment and intervention are discussed based on the authors' own clinical experiences. Each chapter describes a specific disorder, related assessment and applicable intervention methods. Each disorder is also illustrated by the personal story of an individual with that disorder. More than merely a catalog, Introduction to Communication Disorders brings students into the daily lives of individuals who suffer from a disorder.
  • I took a class at college about communication disorders and the professor used this book. I didn't pick up on any bias or negativity like the previous raters stated. I haven't read the whole book but it's basically an introductory book about communication disorders and the book helps you to understand why different disorders are classified and diagnosed the way they are. I probably would not buy this book for reading on vacation but the class I took was interesting and this booked helped me to clarify some of the concepts that we were learning. A good introductory book about the subject, I think.

  • This really is an intro book. It throws a lot of terminology at you, barely scratches the surface on topics and doesn't get into much detail. It's pretty average.

    The cd-rom with the book is about worthless, ironically the sound quality of the clips is poor, leaving you to wonder if you have a hearing problem of your own!

  • At this point some of the research is a little out dated, but anyone who has a child with a communication disorder or thinks they may have one themselves, this would be perfect.

  • Great product!!!!!!!!

  • Clearly written and concise in the book, but the online portion has some major problems: hints for the practice questions direct the user to unrelated pages in unread chapters, and some answers are switched so a student who supplies the correct answer appears to get it wrong.

  • Considering they just came out with another edition, I didn't want to spend a lot on this older one-and didn't. Still has great info, and came with the CD. Came within a week of ordering it with expedited shipping and in much better condition than was stated ("good").

  • There are no pages torn out to my knowledge, there is very little highlighting, the CD was included, overall good shape.

  • I bought this book for a class and received it in "good" condition as described - with the CD included. There was highlighting and the book had a little bit of wear.
