Movement Disorders in Neurologic Disease: Effects on Communication and Swallowing covers a wide range of medical disorders that involve disturbances of muscle tone and muscle control, including Parkinson disease, ataxia, spasmodic dysphonia, and Huntington disease. All these conditions can impact the motor control systems and frequently affect the linguistic and cognitive systems as well. Coverage of each disorder includes an overview, signs and symptoms, genetics, effects on communication and swallowing, risk and protective factors, treatment decision-making, and more. Furthermore, the authors provide valuable information on the medical aspects of each condition, enabling a level of understanding that will ensure multidisciplinary professional communication and the planning and implementation of efficient strategies of intervention. Supported by numerous graphs, figures, clinical photographs, and case studies, this unique book is an essential resource for practitioners and researchers focused on neurogenics and swallowing disorders.
