It is estimated that some 28 million people worldwide are suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), with many more remaining undiagnosed. In Canada alone, recent records indicate an astounding increase of 24% in just five years. Drawing on existing neuroscientific research, not previously linked to CFS, author Helen Germanos answers the burning questions: “How did I get this?” and “Why?” Silent Pain: How Stress and Trauma may lead to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome reveals a novel theory as to how and why CFS develops, in order to provide readers with a deeper understanding of what is happening to them, as well as giving them the tools and insight to embark on their own personal journey of discovery, recovery and transformation. Sharing her own experiences of CFS, Helen explains how she went from being paralysed in bed for nine months – unable to bear noise, light and contact with anyone, including her young son – to living a full life again. Using the same techniques she describes in this book, she left no stone unturned, changing every aspect of her life in order to achieve the balance and harmony that had been previously absent. Aimed at sufferers of CFS, as well as those who are worried that they may be suffering from it, this book can provide readers with the understanding that they need to be able to overcome it. Silent Pain will also help therapists, carers and loved ones of CFS sufferers offer support and understand the importance of their empathy. Never give up – change is the only constant in life.

Here's How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Second Edition is the most comprehensive textbook available addressing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). This text is the definitive reference for students and professionals seeking current best practices in treating children with CAS.

The book is divided into three parts. Part I defines CAS, describes those characteristics most commonly associated with CAS, and offers guidelines for conducting a thorough motor speech evaluation to support an accurate differential diagnosis. Part II summarizes the principles of motor learning and provides clear guidance for how these principles can be put into practice when working with children with CAS. Part III addresses specific topics of interest to clinicians and students looking for practical ideas on how to address the multifaceted challenges of children with CAS such as vowels, prosody, expressive language, social language, and incorporating phonological awareness in CAS treatment. Additional recommendations are provided for supporting the needs of children with limited verbal output and older children with ongoing communicative challenges, working with parents, developing treatment plans, and writing meaningful goals and objectives.

Each chapter of this second edition has been updated to incorporate the most current evidence-based information available on CAS. In addition, five new chapters have been added, including:

Principles of Motor Learning and Their Application to Treatment of CAS (Chapter 4)Evidence-Based Treatment Programs for Children with CAS (Chapter 10)Supporting the Needs of Older Children with Ongoing Communicative Challenges (Chapter 15)Using Apps with Children with CAS (Chapter 21)Developing Meaningful Goals for Children with CAS (Chapter 23)
