This text demonstrates to students a systematic transition from a knowledge base in clinical practice to the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with articulatory or phonological disorders. Combining a strong clinical emphasis with a variety of new chapter learning aids, the Third Edition ofArticulatory and Phonological Impairmentsprovides students with a clinical framework that encompasses basic terms and concepts, phonetic transcription, and several theoretical perspectives that are extensively applied to clinical examples. While this text offers a thorough discussion of phonetic principles (also known as the traditional or motor approach) applied to the diagnosis and treatment of motor-based disorders, emphasis is placed on phonemic approaches. Contemporary issues such as features of a phonological assessment, various phonemic-based therapies, and newer nonlinear/ multi-linear phonologies and their role in the assessment and intervention process are treated in detail. For Speech Language Pathologists seeking up to date and current information on the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with articulatory or phonological disorders
