  • Measuring Voice, Speech, and Swallowing in the Clinic and Laboratory provides a definitive reference and text for methods of measurement of voice, speech, and swallowing functioning and disorders. It was developed for measurement courses in speech-language pathology graduate and doctoral programs and is also an essential reference for practitioners or anyone who needs to make quantitative assessments of the systems involved. The goal of this text is to provide basic information on the instruments and measures commonly used for assessing and treating persons with disorders of voice, speech, and swallowing for clinical practice, research studies, and conducting clinical trials. New developments in electrical and magnetic stimulation for non-invasive stimulation of nerves, muscles and the brain are provided for augmenting treatment benefits for persons with voice, speech and swallowing disorders. Other new techniques included are: electromyography, articulography, transcranial magnetic stimulation, functional MRI, fNIRS, DTI and transcranial direct current stimulation for treatment applications.

    The text includes methods for recording and analyzing speech, acoustics, imaging and kinematics of vocal tract motion, air pressure, airflow, respiration, clinical evaluation of voice and swallowing disorders and functional and structural neuroimaging. Many of the methods are applicable for use in clinical practice and clinical research.
