Primary Progressive Aphasia and Other Frontotemporal Dementias Diagnosis and Treatment of Associated Communication Disorders

Primary Progressive Aphasia and Other Frontotemporal Dementias Diagnosis and Treatment of Associated Communication Disorders

Author: Rene L. Utianski Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/10/2019

Primary Progressive Aphasia and Other Frontotemporal Dementias: Diagnosis and Treatment of Associated Communication Disorders is the second volume in the Medical Speech-Language Pathology book series. It is intended to fill an unmet need to assist clinicians, students, and related healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of the title disorders. There is a growing population of individuals diagnosed with various forms of Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA), and this number is likely to increase as medical practitioners and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) become more expert at identifying these conditions. More clinicians will be seeing, and treating, patients with a diagnosis of FTD or PPA. Toward that end, the goal of this book is to expand this clinical knowledge base and support the development of skills in diagnosis, but also in clinical management. Within each chapter is a concise presentation of available evidence-based practice and research findings, with a focus on sharing information that is clinically applicable and digestible for non-researchers. Each chapter provides a comprehensive outline of testing that will assist in the diagnosis of the cognitive-communication disorders associated with FTD, PPAs, and primary progressive apraxia of speech (PPAOS). Primary Progressive Aphasia and Other Frontotemporal Dementias is targeted toward practicing clinicians, graduate students, and clinical researchers who are interested in the latest conceptualization of FTD spectrum disorders. The intent is that this book provides clinical pearls to assist in diagnostic assessments and treatment planning. The book also comes with a PluralPlus companion website containing full color images from the text and supplementary videos.

Transforming Voice and Communication with Transgender and Gender-Diverse People An Evidence-Based Process

Transforming Voice and Communication with Transgender and Gender-Diverse People An Evidence-Based Process

Author: Adrienne B. Hancock, Linda Siegfriedt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/09/2019

Transforming Voice and Communication with Transgender and Gender-Diverse People: An Evidence-Based Process is written for speech-language pathologists and voice teachers to guide transgender and gender-diverse people through communication transformations. It follows a chronological progression from preparations through techniques, acknowledging all gender presentations throughout the text. A client-centered process is emphasized through case examples illustrating each step. The first section, Start Smart, begins with a chapter about developing and monitoring the provider's self-awareness because a mindful provider is crucial for the safety and success of the process. Information about the populations is provided next to develop the provider's cultural humility and sensitivity. This section closes with practical considerations for working with marginalized populations and ways to mitigate barriers to their accessing care. Service delivery models for five types of settings are described by practicing speech-language pathologists who developed successful programs. The second section, Press On, guides the provider through the best practice standards for gender-related voice and communication services. Procedures and provided forms are tailored to the circumstances and needs of the client and extend the assessment beyond basic vocal function. Three chapters dedicated to the phases of intervention highlight the importance of taking time to establish a collaborative and informed evidence-based plan and prepare the client's body and mind before launching into direct voice work. Stimuli lists, photographs, and figures are provided to assist the client's practice. The final section, Finish Strong, offers several real case examples of navigating the more unique challenges in this process. Five essays about communication transformation written by gender diverse people end the book on an inspirational note. Clients who wish to transform their voice and communication navigate physical, mental, and emotional work. This text is a guide for speech-language pathologists and voice teachers to inform and facilitate transformation. Throughout the book, real examples from the authors and colleagues demonstrate how this work can be done well with informed, thoughtful planning. Extensive resources available on a PluralPlus companion website include fillable forms and videos of techniques and clients progressing through the presented process.
