Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing by Bernard Rousseau and Ryan Branski fulfills a growing need for a contemporary resource for students in speech and hearing science training programs. Extending well beyond traditional speech science and human anatomy, this publication encompasses the latest advances in the understanding of human physiology, basic cell functions, biological control systems, and coordinated body functions.
Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing includes award-winning anatomic artwork from Thieme's Atlas of Anatomy, adding a rich visual basis to the clinical facets of speech, language, swallowing, hearing, and balance. The book begins with fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology such as embryology and development of speech and hearing mechanisms. The second section details nervous system functions including central and peripheral motor control. The physiology of respiration, phonation, articulation and resonance, hearing, swallowing, and balance are covered in the last six chapters.
Highlighted key terms, review questions, learning objectives, and summaries enable instructors and students to consolidate information
Textboxes and sidebars offer meaningful examples of clinical disorders in a context conducive to applying newly learned concepts
500 high-quality, detailed anatomical illustrations maximize comprehension of anatomical and physiological aspects of speech, language, swallowing, hearing, balance and related functions
Online access to Q&A content and anatomy figures provides labels on/off functionality for interactive study and review
This core textbook is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students in communication sciences and disorders. The connection between basic and clinical science enables students to maximize learning and apply this new knowledge during clinical placements and externships.

Exceptionally insightful speech-language pathology textbook highlights individual cases to augment learning!
Speech-Language Pathology Casebook by Ryan Branski, Sonja Molfenter, and an impressive array of contributors presents a diverse spectrum of cases covering communication, voice, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Readers are provided with rich and varied narratives underscoring the fact that clinical intervention of speech-language disorders is an art form based on science. Evidence-based assessments and treatments cover a variety of settings including medical inpatient, outpatient, and skilled nursing facility; home health; school; community-based; and private practice.
Eighty cases following a standardized format encompass a wide range of congenital and acquired disorders spanning the age continuum. Each case includes a clinical history and description, evaluations/testing, diagnosis, treatment, outcomes, questions and answers, suggested readings, and references. With invaluable firsthand insights from practitioners, this unique resource enhances the ability to develop effective, patient-informed interventions.
Discussion of problems frequently omitted from typical curricula, but increasingly relevant to contemporary clinical practice, ranging from telepractice to transgender voice modification
Speech-related issues in children associated with cleft palate, autism spectrum disorder, stuttering, bilingual language delays, severe intellectual disability, congenital porencephaly, FASD, apraxia, and many others
Medical conditions in adults that impact speech-language, such as traumatic brain injury, ALS, right hemisphere disorder, stroke, autoimmune encephalopathy, dementia, Parkinson's disease, autism, and more
Videos, audio, bulleted key points, and handy comparative charts provide additional pearls
The detailed case narratives enable speech-language students to connect and apply theory and knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-life clinical practice. Instructors and speech-language pathologists will also benefit from this excellent teaching and clinical reference.
