The third edition of Cognitive Communication Disorders remains a vital resource for graduate courses that address cognitively based communication disorders. Students, instructors, and clinicians will benefit from the text's comprehensive discussion of cognitive processes and deficits, including attention, memory, executive functions, right hemisphere brain damage, dementia, combat-related mild traumatic brain injury, and traumatic brain injury and the impact that deficits in these cognitive domains may have on language and communication.

Through contributions from a renowned group of contributors, this text provides a comprehensive review of theoretical and applied research on cognitive communication disorders. The renowned contributors include Margaret Lehman Blake, Carole R. Roth, Fofi Constantinidou, Heather Dial, Maya Henry, Jessica Brown, Kathryn Hardin, Nidhi Mahendra, Mary H. Purdy, Sarah E. Wallace, and Sarah N. Villard.


"The book has been thoughtfully put together so that each chapter thoroughly describes the type of disability and includes an in-depth review of the characteristics, assessments, and practical therapeutic approaches that will benefit each client. One of the new chapters addresses primary progressive aphasia to help readers understand more fully what it is and how to treat it. The chapter on mild traumatic brain injury has undergone a major revision to include a discussion of concussive disorders due to sports-related injuries. This is a hot topic in healthcare and is important for students to understand. Case histories are now included in each chapter for increased clinical application. The figures and tables are extremely helpful in describing neurobehavioral correlates, differential diagnoses, and other critical clinical information.

The book is written at an appropriate level of complexity and describes the disorders and their management in ways that clinicians can easily implement. Another wonderful aspect of this book is that each chapter ends with eight to 20 pages of reference materials, which enables readers to further their knowledge by accessing the research studies and evaluating the outcomes of their work with clients throughout their career."
