 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

Focusing on the anatomic concepts that speech-language pathology students must master, Atlas of Neuroanatomy for Communication Science and Disorders is a user-friendly guide to the neural basis of human communication and brain-based disorders. With this book, students will acquire a full understanding of the basic anatomy and physiology of human communication, the neural mechanisms controlling speech, language, cognition and swallowing functions, the anatomic underpinnings of speech/language disorders of the nervous system and related communication impairments, and much more!
Special features:An extraordinary, full-color visual library of labeled anatomic illustrations--from Thieme's world-renowned Atlas of Anatomy Series--that makes every concept crystal-clear
Descriptive legends and text that bridge the gap between neuroanatomic principles and clinical applications
A logical framework that begins with a clear, illustrated overview of the anatomy of the brain and nervous system, ensuring mastery of introductory concepts before moving on to more advanced material
An in-depth look at how neuroanatomic structures are integrated into functional and dysfunctional communication systems, with coverage of aphasia, neuromotor speech disorders, impairments caused by traumatic brain and blast injuries, and more
Includes online access via scratch-off code to Thieme's collection of anatomy images on WinkingSkull.com PLUS, featuring nearly 600 full-color illustrations and timed self-tests with immediate feedback to help identify areas for further study
Edited by Dr. Leonard L. LaPointe, one of today's foremost teachers and practitioners in the field of speech-language pathology, this book offers a wealth of high-yield information for use in the classroom, exam preparation, and course review. It is essential for graduate and undergraduate students in speech-language pathology, audiology, and communication sciences, and will be a valued reference for any clinician working to understand the crucial connection between neuroanatomy and functional systems when treating patients with communication disorders.
How to Stop Stuttering The logical and traditional way to approach stuttering is to try to treat, stop, overcome or manage it. The only problem is, this way often does not work. This guide will present to you another view, one that I think you'll find far more effective and successful in helping you achieve your fluency and life goals. 

You know that you are capable of being, doing and having more. You know that you are intelligent and are able or want to be able to contribute more to your job, class, family, community and world. But, something has been holding you back. You've felt limited, even controlled by stuttering. Well, the great news is that you can learn to start speaking more smoothly, fluently and confidently, but only IF you approach it from a completely different direction. 

My name is Michael Williams and I'm the founder of The Start Speaking Training Center and the PRO90D Speech System, and I stuttered for over 20 years. In this guide, I'm going to share with you no only how I have used stuttering as a springboard to excellent speech, but, how I am helping thousands of people around the globe do the same. 

If you are truly ready to make a change, and have an open mind, I believe you WILL find something in this guide that will truly transform your entire life. And, I don't say that lightly. This guide contains the pure essence of all of the techniques and strategies I use everyday to help people just like you unlock their speaking potential. This is not hype, or theory. My approach to how to stop stuttering draws from the fields of Neuroscience, Neuroplasticity, Accelerated Learning Strategies, High Performance Training and real life experience. May this guide be a true blessing to you and everyone your life touches.
Rapid advances in neural imaging, particularly in regard to neural plasticity and brain changes, have resulted in an evolving neurorehabilitation paradigm for aphasia and related language disorders. Aphasia and Related Neurogenic Language Disorders has been adopted worldwide as a text for aphasia courses. This new 5th edition by Leonard LaPointe and Julie Stierwalt encompasses state-of-the-art concepts and approaches from an impressive cadre of experts who work in research labs, classrooms, clinics, and hospitals-including the world-renowned Mayo Clinic.

As in previous editions, this book embraces a humanistic approach to treatment, addressing multicultural and multilinguistic considerations and social model interventions. The text encompasses a full continuum of cognitive-language disorder management-from everyday practicalities, assessment, and treatment to disorder-specific cases with evidence-based data. Additions to the 5th edition include chapters on pragmatics and discourse, telepractice, digital and electronic advances, funding and reimbursement, and comprehension, syntax, and linguistic based disorders.

Key Features:

A new chapter on neuroanatomical basics features exquisite illustrationsAn in-depth look at neurogenic communication disorders from Mayo Clinic provides firsthand insights on treating patients in an acute care hospital settingDiscussion and test questions, case studies, and clinical pearls offer invaluable didactic guidanceA chapter on expanded traumatic brain injury covers blast injuries and multisystem injuries

This is the most comprehensive yet concise resource on aphasia and related disorders available today. New legions of speech language pathology students, residents, course directors, and practitioners will discover a remarkable guide on the treatment of communication disorders.

Focusing on the anatomic concepts that speech-language pathology students must master, Atlas of Neuroanatomy for Communication Science and Disorders is a user-friendly guide to the neural basis of human communication and brain-based disorders. With this book, students will acquire a full understanding of the basic anatomy and physiology of human communication, the neural mechanisms controlling speech, language, cognition and swallowing functions, the anatomic underpinnings of speech/language disorders of the nervous system and related communication impairments, and much more!
