Item description for Forensic Aspects of Communication Sciences and Disorders by Dennis C. Tanner...
Communication sciences and disorders play an important part in many legal cases, particularly accident, disability and medical malpractice litigation. It is often necessary to determine the nature and extent of injuries and the effects they have on the ability to communicate and, therefore, on the quality of life. Dr. Tanner's book provides a comprehensive overview of human communication, and the myriad of diseases, disorders, deficiencies and defects that can lay waste to it.
When litigating these cases, lawyers and judges are often thrown into a new and complex world of language disorders in children, aphasia, apraxia of speech, disorientation, phonological deficits, verbal paraphasias, dysphagia, silent aspiration, stuttering and so on.
This book emphasizes on those issues that can be important in litigation. It will serve as a worthwhile reference, cutting through the technical terminology and allowing an understanding of the relevant scientific and professional issues associated with human communication and its disorders.
