Basic Medical Science for Speech and Language Therapy Students

£50.00

Product description

Basic Medical Science for Speech and Language Therapy Students by Martin Atkinson and Stephen McHanwell. Published by Whurr Publishers, 2002.

This book covers the anatomy, physiology and neuroscience relevant to the practice of speech and language therapy. It does so in sufficient detail to equip students with an understanding of the relevance of basic medical sciences to the clinical components of their courses. An overview of the major body systems and an outline of the structure and function of cells and pertinent tissues of the body is followed by more detailed descriptions of the structure and function of the nervous system, the respiratory system, the phonatory and articular apparatus and the ear. Their role in normal and abnormal speech and language is illustrated by clinical examples likely to be met in practice. The book will also act as a useful resource for experienced practitioners who wish to refresh or extend their knowledge of those basic sciences relevant to their specialities or as a prelude to undertaking specialised in-service study courses.

Paperback, first edition from 2002. Course textbook. All pages in 'as new' condition; front and back covers slightly creased.
