Plural Publishing
Free sample

This book provides professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology with tools to assist and support family caregivers of persons with communication disorders. It is intended for speech-language pathologists and audiologists who provide intervention for adults with chronic or disabling conditions.

Family caregivers are those who provide continuous, unpaid care to family members and friends who are unable to care for themselves. Caregivers can be trained by speech-language pathologists and audiologist to augment goals established to remediate communication disorders and can be instrumental in motivating clients to complete a program of therapy. However, family caregivers are themselves vulnerable to a number of debilitating conditions as a result of the physical and emotional toll that daily caregiving can take. The stressors are well documented, including the development of chronic diseases, premature death, fatigue, and depression. In addition, caregivers and their coping styles differ according to cultural expectations, and these differences are described in detail here. Supporting Family Caregivers of Adults With Communication Disorders is needed as a resource for clinicians who provide education and counseling to adult patients and their families.

Key Features:

* Detailed description of stressors that affect family caregivers

* Questionnaires and survey instruments to help clinicians recognize the signs of caregiver fatigue and distress

* Resource information to support caregivers and engage them in the goals and objectives of intervention

* Information on caregiver resources that specialize in support areas such as transportation to and from the clinic, financial literacy, respite care, meals, end of life care, advance directives, and home health services

Often, books on neurogenic language disorders view individuals with these disorders as a homogeneous group--ethnically, culturally, and linguistically. Adult Neurogenic Language Disorders: Assessment and Treatment. A Comprehensive Ethnobiological Approach, Second Edition examines how the country's ever-changing demographics require sensitivity and competency in clinicians treating individuals from diverse backgrounds, and also how those demographics relate to health disparities.

As in the previous edition, this second edition addresses the three key disorders that affect adults: language/cognitive disorders associated with dementia, language/cognitive disorders associated with traumatic brain injury, and aphasia and right-hemisphere disorders.

This new edition includes updated and expanded information on the following topics:

Types, prevalence, and assessment of neurogenic language disordersEducating and counseling patients and their familiesNew technologies and new therapies available for treatmentClinician resources with literature and Internet sources

Another new feature to this edition is the companion website, which provides PowerPoint lectures with illustrations for each chapter, a total of 100 multiple-choice questions, and associated instructor answer keys.

Several pedagogical features are also included in this text:

Study questions at the end of each chapterIllustrations of site(s) of lesions, abnormal cell inclusions, and other neuropathologies in types of dementia, neuropathologies of head trauma, and strokeReference tables that compare the dementias, aphasias, and traumatic brain injuries and characteristics of associated language/cognitive disordersUpdated glossary of terms and updated references

This much-needed text illustrates the impact of cultural and ethnic diversity in neurogenic language disorders on medical speech-language pathology caseloads.
