Communication science and disorders play an important part in many legal cases. In personal injury cases it is often necessary to determine the nature and extent of injuries and the effects they have on the ability to communicate. Dr. Tanner's book provides a comprehensive overview of human communication, and the myriad of diseases, disorders, deficiencies and defects that affect it. When litigating these cases, lawyers and judges are often thrown into a new and complex world of language disorders, aphasia including apraxia of speech, disorientation, phonological deficits, verbal paraphasias, dysphagia, silent aspiration, stuttering and more. 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.
