Overview

The Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Second Edition is a natural companion to the Preclinical Speech Science, Second Edition textbook, designed to help students integrate, apply, and go beyond the material presented in the textbook. The workbook contains a variety of activities, including anatomical labeling, measurement of physiologic and acoustic data, interpretation of graphs, and the conduct of simple experiments (without the need for special equipment). Additionally, this companion text contains modified versions of artwork from the textbook, as well as new artwork created by Maury Aaseng. Instructors will find that the activities in Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Second Edition will help students begin to make the transition from passive learners to active participants in their development toward becoming speech-language pathologists.

Review

  • Karen Perry, BA, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Doody's Review Service:
    "This workbook uses ample diagrams, charts, and objective questions to provide a clear, concise review structure for the preclinical speech science curriculum. I found this to be an invaluable resource to help students understand the material in the textbook. It allowed them to engage with the material on a range of levels and in different contexts that helped them retain concepts."
