Speech science :an integrated approach to theory and clinical practice
Speech Science provides an integration of scientific material on the acoustics and physiology of speech production and perception with state-of-the art instrumental techniques used in clinical practice. This book enables the user to easily make the connections between scientific theory and clinical management of communication disorders. This explicit linkage means that readers find the theoretical information meaningful, less intimidating, and more easily accessible. Each chapter demonstrates this connection by first presenting the theoretical information and then applying the principles to assessment and management issues. This comprehensive book, which incorporates principles of speech sound production and perception, relevant anatomy and physiology, and current technology, is both reader- and instructor- friendly. The material is broken into small units that are easy for readers to grasp, with subsequent integration of units into larger domains. For those involved with Speech Science.
