Communication and Swallow Changes in Healthy Aging Adults complies and presents the available research on healthy aging adultsa (TM) performance and abilities in the following areas: auditory comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking, writing, voice and motor speech abilities, cognition, and swallowing. This text also presents principles from the World Health Organizationa (TM)s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health and its applications to aging adults. One of the first texts to cover these principles, this book will address the need for a comprehensive view of communication and swallow issues in aging for students of speech-language pathology. Speech-language pathologist students will learn how to fully compare what would be considered normal for their elderly patients rather than overestimating or underestimating what aging adults are capable of doing. Knowing what would be considered within the spectrum of normal, will help speech-language pathologists to address therapy as effectively as possible. Having this information at hand is particularly important as the nationa (TM)s population is aging at a rapid rate and there is a need for evidence-based practice in speech-language pathology. Written in an easy to follow format, Communication and Swallow Changes in Healthy Aging Adults includes original research data, discussion questions and a list of Quick Facts at the end of each chapter to summarize key points. This text will serve as a useful resource as students see elderly clients in on-campus speech and hearing clinics and when they intern at hospitals and long-term care facilities. Instructor Resources: PowerPoint Slides and an Image Bank
