Exploring Communication Disorders: A 21st Century Introduction through Literature and Media takes an extremely novel approach to the subject by incorporating personalities and characters from literature and movie media throughout the text. The text is comprehensive enough to fulfill the requirements of an intro course, with each communication disorder addressed from the clinical and scientific perspectives including diagnostic and treatment information. Using the media and literature references as an introduction, the text explores a comprehensive introduction to the communication disorders discipline. Movies, television programs, books, and a Broadway play that have characters with communication disorders are studied. There are also references to well-known singers, actors, politicians, writers, radio personalities, and other people in the media, with an emphasis on their particular communication disorders. Because this text may be used as an introductory text, the final chapter, in a question-and-answer format, addresses the clinical and educational requirements to enter the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology, salaries, job opportunities, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), and more.
