Product description

This text covers anatomy, physiology and neuroscience relevant to the practice of speech and language therapy in sufficient detail to equip students with an understanding of the relevance of basic medical sciences to the clinical components of their courses. An overview of the major body systems, inluding an outline of the structure and function of cells and pertinent tissues of the body, is followed by more detailed descriptions of the structure and function of the nervous system, the respiratory system, the phonatory and articular apparatus and the ear. Their role in normal and abnormal speech and language is illustrated by clinical examples likely to be met in practice. The book should also act as a useful resource for experienced practitioners who wish to refresh or extend their knowledge of those basic sciences relevant to their specialities or as a prelude to undertaking specialized in-service study courses.
