Summary

  • This book succinctly presents critical information about the cognitive-communicative disorders associated with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). It includes cutting-edge information about MCI, a very early stage of Alzheimer's disease, and the role of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in early identification and behavioral and/or pharmacologic treatments. Clinical essentials-definitions, assessments, and treatments-for MCI and AD are also covered.
