Summary, etc.:
"Speech Science integrates scientific material on the acoustics, anatomy, and physiology of speech production and perception with state-of-the-art instrumental techniques used in clinical practice.
Each chapter presenting theoretical information is followed by a corresponding chapter on clinical application, demonstrating, the connections between scientific theory and clinical management of communication disorders. To reinforce this link, case studies and questions in each clinical application chapter help students focus on how scientific principles are applied in clinical contexts.
Call-out notes, summary points, and review questions help students consolidate material for improved retention. Schematic illustrations enhance the text and demonstrate anatomical and functional relationships between structures.
With this student-and instructor-friendly text, students will find theoretical information meaningful, less intimidating, and more easily accessible."--Jacket.
