Ideal for speech-language pathology and audiology students, as well as practicing clinicians, the text integrates clinical information with everyday experiences to reveal how anatomy and physiology relate to the speech, language, and hearing systems. Combining comprehensive coverage with abundant, full-color illustrations and a strong practical focus, the text makes complex material approachable even for students with little or no background in anatomy and physiology. Thoroughly updated to reflect current trends, techniques, and best practices, the Fifth Edition of this acclaimed text is supported by innovative Anatesse learning software--now accessible online via PC, Mac, and tablet devices--featuring tutorials, interactive quizzes, and other resources to help students of all learning styles master the material and prepare for professional licensing exams.The authors have included more than 300 full-color anatomical images to help students form a clear, accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems. Review "The content of these chapters is theoretically sound and accurate. The material is thorough and very up to date. The material has considerable depth. The chapters are very thorough. The chapters have been updated to reflect recent technology (e.g. use of neuroimaging, use of ultrasound). The chapters have also been updated to reflect recent research. The text is very rich with elements to break up the material and provide multidimensional learning opportunities. In addition to the outlines and study guides, there are margin definitions/pointers and inset information boxes, Anatesse lessons." About the Author J.
