This volume on adult neurogenic language disorders focuses on the role of cultural diversity. It describes health disparities, including national legislative and demographic changes and their effects; bias in assessment and treatment and the need for culturally competent speech-language pathology services; basic information on the neural structures necessary for language and cognition and their functions in the central nervous system, including structures having roles in memory, attention, learning and language (new to this edition) and advances in neuroimaging; and the evaluation and treatment of language/cognitive disorders associated with dementia and traumatic brain injury, aphasia (with emphasis on cerebrovascular accidents and other sources of focal lesions), and right-hemisphere disorders. This edition has updated and expanded information on the types, prevalence, and assessment of disorders; educating and counseling patients and their families; new technologies and therapies for treatment; and clinician resources. It also has a new companion website. Annotation ©2014 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
