Provides comprehensive coverage of acquired motor speech and language disorders occurring in children in terms of their neuropathological basis, neurology, clinical symptomatology, prognosis, assessment, and treatment. The authors take a disease-specific approach, a comprehensive range of the childhood neurological conditions most commonly encountered clinically by speech-language pathologists covering traumatic brain injury, cerebrovascular accidents, childhood cancers (brain tumors and leukemia), infectious diseases, metabolic disorders, neural tube defects, anoxic conditions (e.g., immersion injury), and convulsive disorder. Also featured are full descriptions of the relevant assessment and treatment procedures currently recommended for use with each of these acquired childhood communication disorders, supported by numerous figures and graphs, case studies, and photographs of the various clinical conditions.
