View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Susan Howell Brubaker has revised the classic ""Workbook for Aphasia"" to update the language and situations to better serve twenty-first-century patients. Since its first edition in 1978, this highly recognizable ""blue book"" has been used by speech-language pathologists as a treatment tool both in sessions and as a home-program supplement, with target populations ranging from adults to early adolescents. The exercises encompass basic- to higher-level tasks addressing reading, graphics, word retrieval, formulation, and a variety of other language skills. The new edition responds to the comments and suggestions of longtime users with several changes to the content and format of the book. The most visible change is the ring binder that will allow for easy copying of treatment materials for individual patients. Inside the workbook, many questions have been revised and others have been added. The Answer Key to Selected Exercises now contains more exercises and is also part of the text, in its own easy-to-find section of the binder. In addition, the book's new, larger font and improved spacing better enables patients with visual difficulties to read the text. This revised and updated third edition will enhance the ability of speech-language pathologists to address the language-impaired population within their practices.
