While cognitive neuropsychology increasingly influences models for the assessment and treatment of aphasia, little has been done to bridge the gap between the theory and its practical implications for working with people with aphasia. "A Cognitive Neuropsychological" "Approach to Assessment and Intervention in Aphasia" bidges the gap by interpreting the theoretical literature and relating it directly to available assessment tools and therapy techniques. Part one provides an explanation of the theoretical model and how this can fracture to provide identifiable deficit patterns. Part two provides a comprehensive review of the therapy literature. The book has evolved from the activity of a group of language therapists specialising in this area and as such is a highly accessible theoretical and practical reference for the working clinician and students of speech and language therapy.
