All too often people in situations in which they need to communicate most clearly with others, such as in spinal cord injuries, strokes or neuromuscular conditions, simultaneously suffer the loss of the ability to speak. This comprehensive guide for doctors, nurses, speech pathologists, rehabilitation specialists, occupational and physical therapists not only lists devices but their applications to conditions including brain stem impairment, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's or Huntington's disease, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and aphasia. Along with the comprehensive text for each condition and treatment options, the accompanying CD-ROM contains over 150 assessment tools, templates of devices, communication boards and other features, making this a treatment tool as well as a reference.
