This textbook aligns the basic science of anatomy and physiology with the applied art and science of communication disorders. The content is approached from a clinical perspective so that students understand the application of the content. Applied Anatomy and Physiology for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is unique for its presentation of elementary and introductory anatomy and physiology in a framework of clinical practice.
- A clinical approach helps students understand anatomy and physiology within the framework of clinical practice so that the relationship between anatomy and physiology and application of the content can be seen almost immediately.
- Clinical Teasers present case study scenarios that introduce the clinical approach and help put the content in context for students to reinforce learning.
- Chapters on pathology and its relationship to anatomy and physiology allow the student to understand the full scope of the subject.
- Why You Need to Know boxes offer the student a brief description of pathology to put the anatomy and physiology into context.
- Objectives at the beginning of each chapter highlight American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) competencies and help students identify content that will assist them in meeting knowledge or skill competencies.
- Part Review Questions: Each part will end with critical thinking, fill-in-the-blank, and matching questions to give the student the opportunity to test knowledge of anatomy and physiology and their ability to apply that knowledge.
