This book is aimed to provide readers with interesting and useful data concerning several topics in speech and language pathology. Thus, the selected title was “Speech, Language and Voice Pathology: Methods, Challenges and Outcomes”. However, it should be pointed out that swallowing is also an important element in speech and language pathology.

It presents current and updated points of view about speech related aspects of craniofacial anomalies; phonological disorders; materials for providing speech and language pathology treatments; swallowing disorders in critical care; voice disorders caused by vocal abuse and misuse; a protocol for assessing and treating speech sound disorders; and outcome analysis of speech and language pathology treatments.
