The ability to communicate is amazing. No other human ability is so complicated, so sophisticated, so important to civilization—and yet so taken for granted. How tragic would life be without the marvelous ability to communicate? In Simply Amazing: Communication Sciences and Disorders, Dr. Dennis C. Tanner explores the stages of the communication chain and examines the act of speech communication from the speaker’s thoughts to the listener’s understanding of them. Relying on more than forty years of experience studying, teaching, researching, and providing clinical services in the communication sciences discipline, Tanner provides a frank and informative discussion about the subject, including both conventional and offbeat theories of human communication, unique and sometimes bizarre disorders, and intriguing patients. Through anecdotes, examples, illustrations, case studies, and personal asides of the amazing human ability to communicate—as well as the myriad disorders, defects, delays, and disabilities that can lay waste to it—Simply Amazing: Communication Sciences and Disorders provides keen insight into the world of communication.

Writing Scientific Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders is a comprehensive guide to the preparation and publication of research papers for researchers in communication sciences and disorders. Individual chapters address the structure, content, and style of the introduction, method, results, and discussion sections of a research paper. The balance of the text examines the writing process, including the nuts and bolts of preparing tables and graphs, reviewing different voices and grammar issues, editing your own work, working with editors and peer reviewers, and getting started toward becoming a productive writer. Each topic is illustrated with informative examples, with clear, direct, and often humorous discussion of what makes the examples good or bad. Writing is essential in nearly every profession and particularly in communication sciences and disorders, where researchers must be able to express complex ideas to a variety of audiences--from colleagues to members of health care teams to clients and family members. Therefore, competency in written expression is required for certification and entry into clinical practice in communication sciences and disorders. Writing Scientific Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders will be a valuable supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate students in courses that include writing assignments and critical assessment of research literature, such as research methods and evidence-based clinical methods courses, as well as in thesis and dissertation preparation. Researchers looking for a guide to help improve their own writing will also find this text to be an invaluable resource that answers the big and little questions that arise in preparing manuscripts.
