The ability to communicate and eat safely is critical for people with life-threatening conditions. These two vital aspects of managing a degenerative disease are typically the responsibility of the speech & language therapist. With this book you'll have a practical guide to assessment and management of speech and swallowing at your fingertips. Each chapter covers the management of one degenerative disease in adult clients: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or motor neurone disease, Parkinson?s disease, Huntington's disease and multiple sclerosis. It benefits from chapters that:

  • Describe the etiology, pathology and medical management of each disorder.
  • Provide details about evaluation of speech and swallowing for that illness with scales for rating the deterioration of each aspect plus reproducible clinical interview and evaluation forms.
  • Describe management protocols for mild, moderate and severe dysarthria and dysphagia.
  • Include reproducible patient/family handouts describing normal speech production and swallowing, plus problem solving and advice for carers and more.

This item is non returnable if the holographic seal and/or shrink-wrap has been unsealed.
