From Bradford Books:
The MIT Encyclopedia of Communication Disorders
Edited by Raymond D. Kent

The MIT Encyclopedia of Communication Disorders (MITECD) is divided into four sections that reflect the standard categories within the field of speech-language pathology and audiology: Voice, Speech, Language, and Hearing. Within each category, entries are organized into three subsections: Basic Science, Disorders, and Clinical Management. Because the approach to communication disorders can be quite different for children and adults, many topics include separate entries reflecting this. Topics covered in MITECD include cochlear implants for children and adults, pitch perception, tinnitus, alaryngeal voice and speech rehabilitation, neural mechanisms of vocalization, holistic voice therapy techniques, computer-based approaches to children's speech and language disorders, neurogenic mutism, regional dialect, agrammatism, global aphasia, and psychosocial problems associated with communicative disorders.

Raymond D. Kent is Professor of Communication Disorders at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
