  • Published
  • 304 Pages

Overview

Craniofacial Anomalies: A Beginner's Guide for Speech-Language Pathologists assists in recognizing craniofacial anomalies, and in understanding the implications of these anomolies, particularly as they impact the acquisition and development of communication skills. The book reviews basic anatomical information pertinent to craniofacial growth and develpopment as well as relevant genetic and embryological information needed to help draw conclusions based on comparison of prenatal growth to postnatal appearance. Specific protocols for observing orofacial structures are described, along with ethical considerations related to that specific assessment, and information is provided for accurately making permanent visual documentation of the observations. A chapter on building professional support features development of patient support groups and ethical use of the World Wide Web. A helpful appendix includes Syndromes with Communication Disorders, conveniently organized on the basis of location of the craniofacial anomaly.

  • Clearly defines and illustrates normal craniofacial appearance, including normal racial and ethnic variations, to faciliate the identification of patients with craniofacial anomalies.
  • Genetic anomalies are compared to anomalies produced by trauma, illness, and cosmetic change so the reader learns to make differential diagnoses and appropriate referrals.
  • Concept of literacy as it applies to patient education is included to highlight the need of nonreading patients for special types of patient education materials.
  • Ethics and techniques for patient photography are reviewed so the user can accurately and ethically photodocument patients
