Differential Diagnosis in Speech-Language Pathology is a clinical reference to be used by clinicians when treating patients with speech and language disorders. It presents both diagnostic procedures and the implications of the findings for selection of treatment. Each chapter defines and discusses a communication disorder, such as aphasia or fluency disorders, and provides the clinician with information on how to determine the appropriate treatment. Case studies show readers how the authors have successfully implemented the diagnostic techniques and treatment options explained in the chapters.
