Each chapter opens with a case scenario designed to direct the student toward learning both the clinical and the basic biological science. The featured scenarios also provide direction in the dealing with a patient's, and family's, personal difficulties by listing genetic disease support groups. The informative text also emphasizes how to go about obtaining the latest information on such topics as molecular testing and imaging techniques. Key Features Features topics not found in most genetics texts designed primarily for medical students such as complex disorders, ambiguous genitalia, pharmacogenetics, and bone dyspasias.

Description : Many professionals in the communicative sciences are relative newcomers to the understanding of genetics as it applies to communicative disorders. A speech-language clinician certainly can diagnose and treat stuttering, for example, but that clinician may not be fully aware of the role of a genetic counselor for the family of a stutterer. An audiologist may be able to assess a hearing impairment, but an understanding of the underlying genetics of that impairment would make that person a better audiologist. The medical geneticist, similarly, could have an inadequate appreciation of how our genes may affect language function. All of these professionals need a source that brings together essential ideas from related disciplines. This is a book about human communication, both normal and disordered, and how our communication abilities are affected by our genes. Many, probably most, communicative disorders are of genetic origin, even if not exclusively genetic. A knowledge of genetics, therefore, is essential to our understanding of communication, of communicative disorders, of how such disorders come about, and of how to deal with them. This is the only book to consider the genetics of communicative disorders from a broad perspective. It examines genetics, embryology, and epidemiology, along with study of the hearing, speech, and language disorders themselves. It also introduces review of issues relevant to genetic counseling and ethics. It is a unique and comprehensive work whose contributors are the leading experts in their respective disciplines. * Only book available to consider all communicative disorders * Unparalleled scrutiny of the sciences basic to the genetics of communicative disorders * Specific attention paid to clinical and ethical issues
