SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, December 1999, Vol. 9, 3. doi:10.1044/nnsld9.5.3
The final issue of the Division 2 Newsletter for 1999 focuses on the role of the speech-language pathologist in long-term care settings. We are witnessing unprecedented change in health care service delivery and reimbursement. Many affiliates are finding that their clients have rapidly exhausted available treatment in the acute care and traditional outpatient care settings. Many clients find themselves with months, years, or even a lifetime of needs related to their communication disorders.
In this issue, the authors tackle many challenging long-term care issues with three neurological disorders: dementia, acquired brain injury (ABI), and aphasia. These articles offer practical clinical approaches to each neurogenic communication disorder. In addition, case stories and examples are included to highlight clinical principles and actual treatment techniques.
