Assisting Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury: The Role of Speech-Language Pathologists–Second Edition By Karen Hux
Assisting Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury: The Role of Speech-Language Pathologists–Second Edition
How does one assist people with traumatic brain injury when often it is essentially a “hidden disability,” and the person affected is virtually indistinguishable from noninjured people? This book prepares graduate students and practicing speech-language pathologists in serving people with TBI. It is organized into three sections:
Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury: Includes definitions, epidemiology, injury severity, and mechanism of injury.
Understanding the Role of Speech-Language Pathologists: Discusses the major disorders associated with TBI, including coma and posttraumatic amnesia, cognitive-communication impairments, motor speech disorders, and swallowing disorders.
Many survivors of TBI along with their families have also shared real life stories and experiences.
