Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach 3rd Edition

by Evelyn R. Klein (Author), James M. Mancinelli (Author)

Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, Third Edition, is a practical, easy-to-follow, informative guide for students and clinicians. The authors present each case from an impairment-based perspective with practical applications for improving activities of daily living, as well as a socially interactive perspective to create a wholistic picture of each case. For people with aphasia, clinicians are encouraged to consider not only language but also executive functions, attention, memory, and visuospatial skills. 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 that includes a case scenario with a photo, functional analysis of the patient, critical thinking/learning activities, a diagnostic profile, the new Target Assessment Snapshot, treatment considerations, and a Venn diagram of the A-FROM Model with patient goals for each case. Special features include “Test Your Knowledge” sections based on 10 patient scenarios along with an answer key, a Quick Reference Diagnostic Chart for ALDs, and a Functional Communication Connections worksheet for treatment planning purposes.

New to the Third Edition

  • The 15 clinical cases include new photos along with the Target Assessment Snapshot depicting level of severity for expression, comprehension, reading, and writing and areas of cognitive impairment. A new case includes a bilingual person with aphasia.
  • All chapters have been updated with relevant research.
  • An A-FROM model graphic for each patient’s treatment goals is included.
  • There is a new Assessment Summary Sheet to help the clinician with the development of a diagnostic profile.
  • The chapter on assessment is updated and new assessments are added, including the Assessment of Living with Aphasia (ALA) and the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (R-BANS), the Progressive Aphasia Severity Scale (PASS), and more.
  • Chapter 10 includes more than 25 treatment approaches and therapeutic programs.
  • The chapter on assessment and service delivery for people with ALD includes discussions of the ICF and the A-FROM Model.
  • The PowerPoint lecture slides to augment the text are now accessible on a PluralPlus companion website.

Anatomy and Physiology: From Science to Life 3rd Ed

by Gail Jenkins (Author), Gerard J. Tortora (Author)

Anatomy and Physiology: From Science to Life, 3rd edition builds on the success of its prior editions by providing solutions to recurring issues. The 3rd edition better motivates students and helps them make the connection to what is important going forward and helps students who lack study and critical thinking skills. The entire text is focused on aiding critical thinking, conceptual understanding, and relevant application of knowledge when studying Anatomy and Physiology. From Science to Life, 3e effectively blends print and media to bring the content to life for students. The conceptual focus allows for fewer pages in the printed text, making the text less intimidating to the uninitiated student. Accompanying media allows for a richer investigation of the content presented in the printed text, provides useful background knowledge, and ensures the students a solid reference resource when the course is complete. WileyPLUS sold separately from text.
