Description: Assisting Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury helps prepare graduate students and practicing speech-language pathologists to serve people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The book is divided into three sections: Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury, Understanding the Role of Speech-Language Pathologists, and Understanding Reintegration. The first section provides an overview of TBI: definitions, epidemiology, injury severity, and mechanisms of injury. The second section deals with the major disorders associated with TBI for which speech-language pathologists assume diagnostic and intervention responsibility: coma and post-traumatic amnesia, cognitive-communication impairments, motor speech disorders, and swallowing disorders. The final section provides information about integrating survivors of TBI into family, educational, vocational, and community settings. This valuable tool is a must-have for all professionals who work with patients with TBI.
