Description

Anatomy & Physiology for Speech, Language, and Hearing, Sixth Edition provides a solid foundation in anatomical and physiological principles relevant to communication sciences and disorders. This bestselling textbook beloved by instructors and students integrates clinical information with everyday experiences to reveal how anatomy and physiology relate to the speech, language, and hearing systems. Combining comprehensive coverage with abundant, beautiful full-color illustrations and a strong practical focus, the text makes complex material approachable even for students with little or no background in anatomy and physiology.

Unlike other texts, this book features numerous anatomical illustrations but also photos of real specimens.

Thoroughly updated to reflect current trends, techniques, and best practices, this new edition of is supported by innovative ANAQUEST study software offers students further interactive learning via lessons and interactive quizzes, and other resources to help students of all learning styles master the material and prepare for professional licensing exams.

The text includes numerous full-color anatomical images to help students form a clear, accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems. Photographs provide a real-life look at the body parts and functions you are studying. Use these images as reference for accuracy in describing body systems, parts, and processes. Allow yourself to be amazed by the intricacies of human anatomy!

ANAQUEST provides on-the-go learning, with animation lessons, simulations, interactive quizzes, and updates to content.

New to the Sixth Edition
Updated and expanded information on the physiology of swallowing that includes discussion of orofacial-myofunctional disorders and other swallowing dysfunction arising from physical etiologies.
More physiology content, including an introduction to the effects of pathology on communication within each of the physical systems of communication.
Many new photographs of specimens have been added, with a focus on a clear and accurate understanding of the classical framework of the speech, language, and hearing systems.
Clinical Notes boxes link anatomy and physiology with disorders seen by speech-language pathologists and audiologists to provide real-world clinical applications for students.
The ANAQUEST study software (formerly called Anatesse) is now accessible on a PluralPlus companion website. The software now includes ten video lab experiences narrated by new contributor, Katrina Rhett, an anatomist and lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University. The authors have also added three-dimensional views with animations that explore the important processes of hearing, phonation, respiration, swallowing, and more.

About the author
J. Anthony (Tony) Seikel, PhD, is emeritus faculty at Idaho State University, where he taught graduate and undergraduate coursework in neuroanatomy and neuropathology over the course of his career in Communication Sciences and Disorders. He is co-author of numerous chapters, books and research publications in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. His current research is examining the relationship between orofacial myofunctional disorders and oropharyngeal dysphagia. Dr. Seikel is also co-author of Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology for Speech and Hearing Sciences also published by Plural Publishing in 2018. David G. Drumright, BS, grew up in Oklahoma and Kansas, taught electronics at DeVry for several years, then spent 20 years as a technician in acoustics and speech research. He developed many programs and devices for analysis and instruction in acoustics and speech/hearing. He has been semi-retired since 2002, working on graphics and programming for courseware. He is also co-author of Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology for Speech and Hearing Sciences also published by Plural Publishing in 2018. Daniel J. Hudock, PhD, CCC-SLP, is an Associate Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the College of Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences at Idaho State University. He is currently serving as the Speech Language Pathology Graduate Program Co-Director and Founding PhD in Rehabilitation and Communication Sciences Program Co-Coordinator. He has published over 30 articles and given over 100 presentations with several recent ones being invited half-day and full-day podium talks. In his TEDx Talk (https://bit.ly/2oAYeKC) entitled, “Please Don’t Finish My Sentence”, he presents about his experience living with a stutter. Dr. Hudock has successfully completed several grants and is an avid volunteer within the profession and associations focused on fluency disorders, including serving in leadership positions, including the coordinating committee of ASHA’s SIG 4 on Fluency Disorders. His two primary tracts of research focus on 1) better understanding, assessing, and treating fluency disorders through holistic interprofessional partnerships with mental health professionals and 2) the neuroscience of speech perception and production in people who stutter using high-density EEG and time-frequency analysis. He is the founding director of the Northwest Center for Fluency Disorders that offers an intensive interprofessional stuttering clinic with speech-language pathologists collaborating with counselors and clinical psychologists through an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) informed framework in the treatment of adolescent and adult stuttering. Lastly, he has taught courses on Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech and Hearing Mechanisms and Speech and Hearing Science for over a decade, starting as a graduate teaching assistant at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.
