Acquired Language Disorders: A Case-Based Approach, Third Edition, is a practical, easy-to-follow, informative guide for students and  clinicians. The authors present each case from an impairment-based  perspective with practical applications for improving activities of  daily living, as well as a socially interactive perspective to create a  wholistic picture of each case. For people with aphasia, clinicians are  encouraged to consider not only language but also executive functions,  attention, memory, and visuospatial skills. This edition begins with a  review of the basics of brain-behavior relationships and pertinent  medical terminology for treating individuals who have a neurological  impairment. Each disorder is then introduced in a case-based format that  includes a case scenario with a photo, functional analysis of the  patient, critical thinking/learning activities, a diagnostic profile,  the new Target Assessment Snapshot, treatment considerations, and a Venn  diagram of the A-FROM Model with patient goals for each case. Special  features include “Test Your Knowledge” sections based on 10 patient  scenarios along with an answer key, a Quick Reference Diagnostic Chart  for ALDs, and a Functional Communication Connections worksheet for  treatment planning purposes.
