This highly regarded resource for voice disorders across the lifespan has been thoroughly revised and reorganized for this exciting third edition. Organized sequentially through the life stages from pediatrics through geriatrics, descriptions of common voice disorders and general and specific techniques for voice therapy are covered. Clinical and practical in its approach, this text strives to instill clinical competencies that form the foundation of successful assessment and intervention. New to this edition, a bonus CD-ROM contains handouts and forms that can be printed for clinical use or downloaded and modified to meet individual clinical needs. This CD-ROM also provides color photos of vocal pathologies, case studies, and a list of Internet resources. Thoughtfully updated and carefully researched, this is an excellent practical and instructional tool for clinicians working with voice disorders.
