This new book is a much-awaited companion volume to Plural's Assessment of Communication Disorders in Children. These two volumes now offer a comprehensive set of resources and protocols to assess the entire range of communication disorders in all age groups.It offers a unique combination of scholarly information, invaluable resources, and time-saving protocols on assessment of communication disorders in adults. Most resource books offer limited research and scholarly information, thus making them unsuitable as textbooks for academic courses on assessment and diagnosis. Most traditional textbooks on the other hand do not include practical, easy-to-use, and time-saving resources and protocols that the practicing clinicians can readily use during assessment sessions. By combining the strengths of traditional textbooks with newer assessment resources and protocols, this one-of-a kind book offers a single, comprehensive source that is suitable as a textbook and useful as a practical clinical resource.While combining scholarly information needed for academic courses and practical tools for clinical assessment, this innovative book: Provides a complete set of common assessment resources and protocols Covers the full range of communication disorders in adults, from aphasia to voice disorders Gives a comprehensive outline of basic assessment procedures Provides a set of protocols that are necessary to assess any communication disorder in adults Addresses the multicultural issues in assessing communication disorders in adults and offers an integrated assessment approach that includes the most desirable features of the traditional and several alternative approaches Contains two chapters for each disorder; one on resources that offers scholarly and research background on the disorder and one on resources that describe practical procedures and protocols that save preparation time and effort for the clinician Has been designed as both a textbook as well as an assessment resource book Includes a CD of test protocols
