MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia

    By

    MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia: Clinical Essentials for Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive-Communication Disorders is the ideal choice for instructors who teach an adult language disorders course that includes a unit devoted to cognitive-communication disorders of adults with dementia. It succinctly presents the critical information about the cognitive-communicative disorders associated with mild cognitive impairment MCI and Alzheimer's disease. The population of individuals with Alzheimer's is exploding a new case is diagnosed every seven seconds, and MCI has emerged as an important condition that SLPs can help identify and treat. MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia: Clinical Essentials for Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive-Communication Disorders is unique for several reasons: It focuses on the most common dementia-producing disorder, Alzheimer's disease. It contains cutting-edge information about MCI, a very early stage of Alzheimer's disease that has gained worldwide interest because early identification provides options for early behavioral and/or pharmacologic treatments and because SLPs have a role in its identification and treatment. It covers the clinical essentials that students and practicing professionals need to know - definition, assessment, and treatment of MCI and AD. It is written by individuals who have had decades of funding to study the cognitive-communication disorders of dementia and who have developed standardized tests that are widely used by SLPs. It is smaller than a text and larger than a book chapter and thus provides an economical way to learn the clinical essentials of this, the profession's fastest growing clinical population. MCI and Alzheimer's Dementia: Clinical Essentials for Assessment and Treatment of Cognitive-Communication Disorders is a must have for clinicians and students working with the ever-expanding population of patients struggling with MCI and Alzheimer's disease.
