It provides the necessary foundations for students who want to be good clinicians and run good institutions. With text of exceptional lucidity, buttressed by a wealth of didactic illustrations and student exercises, The Speech Sciences will inevitably become an essential teaching tool not only for the communication sciences and disorders but for many other related disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology, social sciences, computer sciences, psychology, human engineering and more.
