Description

Heavily revised, the Sixith Edition of Articulation and Phonological Disorders presents a comprehensive review of information important to the study of clinical phonology.

For courses in Articulation and Phonological Disorders, this leading book presents a comprehensive review of information important to the study of clinical phonology, revised to be the most current and up-to-date resource available for those studying the field. Readers of the text will be given a sound introduction to the normal aspects of speech sound articulation, normal phonological development, classification and factors related to the presence of phonological disorders, the assessment and remediation of phonological disorders, as well as phonology as it relates to language and dialectal variations. This text does not prescribe a single approach to phonological disorders but rather presents an eclectic perspective on the nature, assessment, and treatment of this communication impairment, and is primarily concerned with those disorders not etiologically associated with known or obvious sensory, structural, or neuromotor deficits. Among the changes and updates to the sixth edition comes the addition of a third author, Peter Flipsen Jr., a highly-recognized scholar in the area of clinical phonology, bringing new information and perspectives to this classic text, and an added subtitle that reflects recent changes in terminology in the field. The sixth edition of  Articulation and Phonological Disorders: Speech Sound Disorders in Children proves once again its “classic” status, and its rightful place on every speech, language, and hearing clinician’s bookshelf.
