Speech Pathology in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity
This book explores the intricate relationship between culture and communication before moving on to intercultural health care, including a detailed look at perception of illness and disability. Two chapters on intercultural speech pathology look at clinical practice, including culturally-focussed assessment and management approaches. Interpreter-mediated speech pathology is covered in detail, including an overview of the process of interpreting, debate on professional versus untrained interpreters, discussion of pre-session briefing, a look at potential barriers to the interpretation process and introduction to a collaborative partnership model for working with interpreters. The final chapter explores the author's thoughts on the future directions in research and education in the field of intercultural and interpreter-mediated speech pathology. The book provides a comprehensive and practical insight into intercultural and interpreter-mediated speech pathology. With its easy to read and practical content, it should be of significant use to undergraduate students and qualified speech-language pathologists new to multicultural/multilingual contexts. However, it would also be suitable for experienced clinicians who find themselves tackling the challenges of intercultural speech pathology everyday.

Developmental Speech Disorders
This book looks at the major changes that have occurred in the theory and practice of speech therapy for children with developmental speech disorders. It looks at current issues and their clinical implications, but the overall aim of the book is to set clinical practice firmly in a theoretical framework. While it is therefore essentially a practical book for practitioners, it also engages in the academic investigation of the nature of the different types of developmental speech disorders and their consequences for the children. This discussion provides the framework in which to consider clinical management and specific clinical techniques. A recurrent theme throughout each chapter is the impact of linguistics upon our understanding and management of childrena s problems in learning to pronounce. There is no doubt that the linguistic revolution in speech and language pathology has produced an entirely new perspective on these disorders by identifying the phonological dimension of speech development. Of equal importance is the expansion of knowledge about childrena s language development. Much more information is now available about phonological development in terms of what the developmental changes are and when they occur. This information is valuable in assessment and diagnosis. The book also includes a number of competing theories explaining how children develop their pronunciation patterns. These theories provide the premises upon which to establish a principled theory of therapy. To reflect these issues and their clinical implications the book is divided into three sections. The first section explores the framework within which to discuss developmental speech disorders. The second section covers three specific types of pathological conditions with which developmental speech disorders are associated. The third section examines the problems of children who have no evident major disabling condition and yet they experience severe difficulties learning to pronounce and subsequently, more often than not, learning to read and write.

Research Methods in Communication Disorders
Many communication disorders are poorly understood and many treatments used in therapy remain unproven. Speech and Language therapists are increasingly involved in research in these areas but may lack the training and experience required to conduct it. Not the least of their problems is that few textbooks discuss the specific problems of research design in communication disorders. Research Methods in Speech and Language Therapy fills this gap. It will serve as an introductory text for students who are training to be therapists and as an introduction to more advanced methods for clinicians involved in research. Different approaches to research are described and the basic principles of research design and statistical analysis described. The book uses a wide range of published research to illustrate how research may be conducted in these areas and gives particular attention to the problems of researching the effectiveness of therapy.

Hearing Differently: The Impact of Hearing Impairment on Family Life
Hearing loss now strikes one in seven people but how to study the impact of hearing loss on relationships has continually baffled researchers. The authors' personal experience with profound hearing loss and her roles as wife, mother, social worker and counsellor, suggest that the complexities involved might be fruitfully explored by using an intensive and repetitive interviewing technique. This book explores and analyses 150 in-depth interviews with hearing impaired people, including eleven couples in committed relationships where one partner is hearing and the other is hearing impaired. Detailed information was obtained about the way each couple managed conflict, decision making, household chores, communication, and perceived the hearing impairment within their relationship. Five major strands emerge: intimate family relationships, social support networks, communication strategies, the nature of care and recommendations for social policy. By drawing from the fields of family therapy, marital therapy, counselling, family sociology, social policy, psychology, social psychology and linguistics as well as disability and deafness, a new broader and more positive picture emerges. This ground-breaking book is aimed at professionals who would like to work more effectively with deaf and hearing impaired people. Although not a 'How to Cope' book, it will also interest hearing impaired people themselves because of the enormous number of insights offered.

Intracranial and Inner Ear Physiology and Pathophysiology
This book, which brings together some 30 contributors from the leading experts in this field, is based on papers presented at the Second International Conference on Intracranial and Inner Ear Fluids: Basic Aspects and Clinical Applications, held in Bath in 1997. The aim of the meeting was to bring together neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, neurologists and audiologists to discuss the following topics: intracranial and inner fluid interactions; the endolymph/perilymph/cerebrospinal fluid and associated disorders; non-invasive measurement of intracranial and inner fluid pressures; clinical aspects with particular reference to symptomatology, diagnosis and treatment; and comparative fluid models. Combining the clinical and research aspects of fluid and pressure regulation in the intracranial and intralabrynthine compartments as well as discussions on the clinical implications of abnormal fluid pressure is an innovative idea. The two topics have much in common. Maintaining both the intracranial pressure and the intralabrynthine pressure with normal limits is important for the normal functions of both the central nervous system and the ear. Communication between the intracranial space and the intralabrynthine space and their inter-relationships have been under-appreciated. These inter-relationships allow the possibility to measure intracranial pressure non-invasively by measuring the intralabrynthine pressure.
