Overview

The Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Third Edition is a natural companion to the Preclinical Speech Science, Third 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). Comprehensive answers are also included for each chapter.

The third edition of the workbook reflects the changes found in the textbook and includes activities to correspond with the three new textbook chapters on Auditory Anatomy and Physiology, Auditory Psychophysics, and Speech Physiology Measurement and Analysis, as well as revised content throughout the existing chapters.

The activities in Preclinical Speech Science Workbook, Third Edition will help students begin to make the transition from traditional classroom and textbook learners to active participants in their development toward becoming speech-language pathologists and audiologists.

About The Authors

Jeannette D. Hoit

Jeannette D. Hoit, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona and a speech-language pathologist. Dr. Hoit received her BA in Anthropology from University of California at Los Angeles, her MA in Communicative Disorders from San Diego State University, her PhD in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of Arizona, and she pursued postdoctoral study in the Harvard School of Public Health Respiratory Biology Program and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Speech Research Laboratory. Dr. Hoit’s research focuses on speech physiology, with an emphasis on normal aging and development, neuromotor speech disorders, and respiratory function and dysfunction. Dr. Hoit is a past and current editor of the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and past president of the American Association of Phonetic Sciences. She has received a Distinguished Alumnus Award from San Diego State University and several teaching and mentoring awards from the University of Arizona.


Gary Weismer

Gary Weismer, PhD, is Oros-Bascom Professor Emeritus in the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders, University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Pennsylvania State University, and his doctorate from UW-Madison in 1975. Dr. Weismer’s research publications concern speech production in healthy talkers, and speech production and intelligibility phenomena in persons with motor speech disorders. Dr. Weismer served twice as Associate Editor for the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (formerly the Journal of Speech and Hearing Research), as Associate Editor at Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica (FPL) from 1994-2011, and as Editor-in-Chief at FPL from 2011-2016. During his 35 years at UW-Madison Dr. Weismer won several teaching awards, including for mentoring efforts in the UW-Madison Honors program. Dr. Weismer mentored 16 doctoral students during his career, many of whom are currently scientific leaders and university administrators. He is a past member of the Executive Board of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics, a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, and past Chair of his department. His research was supported by NIH for more than 25 years.
