The Communication Disorders Casebook: Learning by Example, Second Edition focuses on current issues and trends in speech-language pathology (SLP) clinical practice. New and advanced students as well as practitioners will benefit from this comprehensive collection of real-world examples provided by experienced clinicians and scholars. The cases follow an easy-to-understand structure that allows readers to accompany an SLP through the steps of evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of individuals with speech, language, swallowing, and hearing challenges and their families.

The clinical studies employ a holistic, person-first approach that considers the beliefs, values, lived experiences, and social contexts of patients throughout the lifespan. With a deep commitment to case-based learning, Shelly S. Chabon, Ellen R. Cohn, and Dorian Lee-Wilkerson have curated a valuable compendium of thought-provoking studies that encourage readers to think like clinicians, with empathy, understanding, and knowledge.
