Cognitive and Communication Interventions by Martha S. Burns Summary

Understanding the recent science about how therapy changes the brain can empower clinicians to face the challenges of increasingly demanding medical and educational settings. However, many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are unaware of the vast impact new neuroscience research has on clinical practice. Cognitive and Communication Interventions: Neuroscience Applications for Speech-Language Pathologists is a practical guide that informs and enables SLP’s, clinical psychologists, and other therapeutic professionals to use new research to enhance their clinical outcomes. Although based on independent neuroscience principles and research, this unique book is designed to be a readable and scientifically sound clinical guidebook. Written with the busy clinician in mind, this professional resource uses accessible, easy-to-understand language to walk readers through the complexities of neuroscience and provide workable strategies for application. The beginning chapters break down important concepts, such as neuroplasticity, environmental stressors, and connectomics, to create a base of understanding. The middle chapters delve into recent investigations of factors that potentially affect typical brain development, as well as disrupt connectomics. The final chapters provide neuroscience considerations for intervention, including the “What, How, and When” of therapy and other important considerations for individualizing and maximizing outcomes. Throughout the book, clinicians will also find case studies that provide examples of the practical applications of neuroscience research and study questions to improve memory and inference.

Des yeux pour entendre - Voyage au pays des sourds by Oliver Sacks Summary

Les livres précédents d'Oliver Sacks nous ont montré l'originalité de sa démarche : aborder des maladies ou des affections comme autant de " mondes " particuliers, autant de modes d'existence et de conscience spécifiques. C'est à un voyage dans le monde des sourds qu'il nous convie cette fois-ci, en nous racontant, tout d'abord l'histoire de ce monde. La difficulté pour les sourds d'entrer dans le langage les a longtemps fait considérer comme intellectuellement inférieurs – jusqu'au jour où l'abbé de l'Épée, au XVIIIe siècle, à Paris, les écouta, c'est-à-dire observa la langue des signes qu'ils pratiquaient déjà entre eux et, à partir d'elle, mit au point un système gestuel de communication. L'accès des sourds à la culture et à la dignité s'est donc fait en France – les noms de Condillac, Desloges, Massieu, Sicard, laurent Clerc en témoignent. Puis cette histoire s'est poursuivie dans le monde entier, jusqu'à la fondation de Gallaudet, aux États-Unis, la première université réservée aux sourds. Mais ce livre est plus qu'une histoire. Il montre également ce que la surdité peut nous apprendre à tous, sourds ou entendants, sur notre condition d'êtres parlants. Car le langage est plus que sa simple expression vocale ; comme l'a montré Chomsky, il repose sur des " structures profondes " innées, qui peuvent s'actualiser chez les sourds comme chez les entendants. Ce que les sourds donnent ainsi à voir, à qui les écoute, c'est bel et bien une autre façon, aussi riche que celle des entendants, de pratiquer le langage – une autre manière d'être humain.

Sais-tu pourquoi je saute ? by Naoki Higashida Summary

" Quand Naoki explique Pourquoi je saute ? c'est à se demander pourquoi le reste du monde, lui, ne saute pas du même élan du coeur " –; Josef Schovanec Pour la première fois, un enfant atteint d'autisme sévère nous raconte l'autisme de l'intérieur. Il répond aux questions que les parents se posent : Pourquoi fuis-tu le contact visuel ? Est-il vrai que tu détestes qu'on te touche ? Pourquoi répètes-tu la même question sans arrêt ? Pourquoi sautes-tu en tapant des mains ?, etc. David Mitchell, l'un des meilleurs écrivains anglais de sa génération et père d'un enfant autiste, a découvert ce texte qui fut pour lui une révélation, une sorte de Scaphandre et le Papillon de l'autisme : " J'ai eu l'impression, pour la première fois, que notre fils nous racontait ce qui se passait dans sa tête. " Il a décidé de le traduire du japonais avec sa femme KA Yoshida : " Ce livre est bien plus qu'une somme d'informations, il apporte la preuve qu'il y a, emprisonné à l'intérieur du corps autistique, apparemment impuissant, un esprit aussi curieux, subtil et complexe que le vôtre, le mien, celui de n'importe qui. " Naoki a appris à communiquer grâce à une grille alphabétique. Il a écrit ce livre à 13 ans et l'a d'abord publié via Internet. Il a aujourd'hui 22 ans et communique toujours grâce à son clavier. Il vit à Kimitsu et tient un blog. Traduit de l'anglais par Daniel Roche

En réalité, si le corps de Martin est inerte, son esprit fonctionne parfaitement. Littéralement prisonnier, il ne peut même pas cligner des yeux pour se manifester. Le pire, ce sont ces infirmières qui le traitent désormais comme une chose négligeable, alors qu’il est parfaitement conscient de ce qui se passe. Mais un jour, après onze années de cauchemar, un thérapeute entrevoit de la vie chez Martin. Grâce à des soins – enfin - adaptés, le jeune homme se « réveille » peu à peu à la vie, recommence à parler et à marcher. Un formidable combat, une extraordinaire renaissance. Le témoignage bouleversant d'un enfant prisonnier 11 années dans son propre corps.

Acquired Speech and Language Disorders by B. E. Murdoch Summary

The stimulus for writing this book arose from the author's perception of a lack of available texts which adequately integrate the subjects of neuroanatomy and functional neurology with the practice of speech language pathology. This perception was gained from almost two decades of teaching in the areas of neuroanatomy and acquired neuro logical speech-language disorders to speech pathology students initially at the South Australian College of Advanced Education and, for the past five years, at the University of Queensland. Although a plethora of excellent texts devoted specifically to each of the subjects of neuroanatomy, neurology and aphasiology have been published, few have attemped to integrate these individual subject areas in such a way as to provide a more clear understanding of the neurological bases of clinically recognized forms of aphasia and motor speech disorders. In writing this text, I have attempted to provide a better balance between neuroanatomy-neurology and. speech-language pathology. Relevant areas of neuroanatomy and neurology are introduced and discussed in the context of specific speech and language disorders. In this way, I have aimed at providing a better link between the relevant neuroanatomical and neurological knowledge on the one hand, and specific neurologically based communication disorders on the other, in order to enhance the reader's understanding of the origins, course and prognosis of these disorders. Of course the writing of any book requires the support and encouragement of other people. This text was no exception.

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders by Argye E. Hillis Summary

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the essential guide to the scientific and clinical tenets of aphasia study and treatment. It focuses on how language breaks down after focal brain damage, what patterns of impairment reveal about normal language, and how recovery can be optimally facilitated. It is unique in that it reviews studies from the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted—cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology—as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain, there are chapters devoted to theory and models of the language task, the neural basis of the language task (focusing on recent neuroimaging studies) and clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments in that domain. In addition, there is broad coverage of approaches to investigation and treatment from leading experts, with several authors specializing in two or more disciplines. This second edition focuses on characterizing the cognitive and neural processes that account for each variant of aphasia as a first step toward developing effective rehabilitation, given that aphasia is one of the most common and disabling consequences of stroke. The best and most authoritative handbook in the field, The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the definitive reference for clinicians and researchers working in the scientific investigation of aphasia.
