Preclinical Speech Science: Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics, and Perception, Third Edition is a high-quality text for undergraduate and graduate courses in speech and hearing science. Written in a user-friendly style by distinguished scientists/clinicians who have taught the course to thousands of students at premier academic programs, it is the text of choice for instructors and students. Additionally, it is applicable to a broad range of courses that cover the anatomy and physiology of speech production, speech acoustics, and swallowing as well as those that cover the hearing mechanism, psychoacoustics, and speech perception. The material in this book is designed to help future speech- language pathologists and audiologists to understand the science that underpins their work and provide a framework for the evaluation and management of their future clients. It provides all the information students need to be fully ready for their clinical practicum training. KEY FEATURES: Describes scientific principles explicitly and in translational terms that emphasize their relevance to clinical practice. Features beautiful original, full-color illustrations designed to be instructive learning tools. Incorporates analogies that aid thinking about processes from different perspectives. Features "sidetracks" that contain clinical insights and relate interesting historical and contemporary facts to the discipline of speech and hearing science. Provides a framework for conceptualizing the uses, subsystems, and levels of observation of speech production, hearing, and swallowing. Includes material that is ideal for preparing both undergraduates and graduates for clinical study. NEW TO THIS EDITION: Three new, up-to-date, and comprehensive chapters on Auditory Anatomy and Physiology; Auditory Psychophysics; and Speech Physiology Measurement and Analysis. All chapters fully revised including updated references and new full-color, detailed images. A

The Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Third Edition is a natural companion to the Preclinical Speech Science, Third Edition textbook, designed to help students integrate, apply, and go beyond the material presented in the textbook. The workbook contains a variety of activities, including anatomical labeling, measurement of physiologic and acoustic data, interpretation of graphs, and the conduct of simple experiments (without the need for special equipment). Comprehensive answers are also included for each chapter. The third edition of the workbook reflects the changes found in the textbook and includes activities to correspond with the three new textbook chapters on Auditory Anatomy and Physiology, Auditory Psychophysics, and Speech Physiology Measurement and Analysis, as well as revised content throughout the existing chapters. The activities in Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Third Edition will help students begin to make the transition from traditional classroom and textbook learners to active participants in their development toward becoming speech-language pathologists and audiologists.

This comprehensive textbook for undergraduate-level anatomy and physiology courses in communication sciences and disorders programs is neither oversimplified nor excessively detailed. The book is written with clinical endpoints in mind, and only those topics that are ultimately important to understanding, evaluating, and managing clients with speech, hearing, and swallowing disorders are covered. Drawing on material from the best-selling Preclinical Speech Science: Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics, and Perception, Third Edition textbook (Hixon, Weismer, & Hoit, 2020), the authors have provided chapters that cover basic concepts in anatomy and physiology, each of the speech subsystems (respiratory, laryngeal, velopharyngeal-nasal, and pharyngeal oral), the auditory system, swallowing physiology, and neural structures and mechanisms that support speech/language, hearing, and swallowing. The text was carefully crafted to meet the needs of entry-level university students and the figures were designed to feature the key elements of the concepts discussed in the text. New to the Second Edition: * New author, Brad Story, PhD, who brings fresh ideas and perspectives to the book * New introductory chapter that covers several basic concepts of anatomy and physiology * More than 25 videos that demonstrate key concepts in the text, most of which were created specifically for this book * Clinical Notes sections that highlight the relevance of anatomy and physiology to the clinical practices of speech-language pathology and audiology * Nearly 100 new or updated illustrations * Extensively revised text to enhance clarity and provide support for beginning students * Updated material based on recent literature Key Features: * Numerous beautiful, full-color illustrations * Complex information presented clearly and concisely, in an easy-to-understand manner * Clinical applications to basic anatomy and physiology are woven throughout the book Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book.

Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition is specifically written for the speech-language pathologist working with hearing impaired populations. This accessible text incorporates the expertise of audiologists along with the knowledge and experience of speech-language pathologists. The theories and training of both disciplines are combined in order to facilitate the practical application of foundational audiological information into speech-language pathology practice.
