Summary "Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, now in its second edition, is a practical, easy-to-follow, informative guide for students and clinicians. The authors present each case from a holistic perspective, encouraging clinicians to consider executive functions, attention, memory, and visuospatial skills of the person with aphasia during the assessment process and throughout treatment. This edition begins with a review of the basics of brain-behavior relationships and pertinent medical terminology for treating individuals who have a neurological impairment. Each disorder is then introduced in a case-based format with a Target Model that includes a diagnostic profile along with treatment considerations and a functional analysis of the case. By providing a variety of ALD patient cases along with critical thinking activities for students and a review for clinicians, Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, Second Edition demonstrates its relevance in both the classroom and clinical settings."--Cover
