About this book

This is the first volume to present individual chapters on the full range of developmental and acquired pragmatic disorders in children and adults. In chapters that are accessible to students and researchers as well as clinicians, this volume introduces the reader to the different types of pragmatic disorders found in clinical populations as diverse as autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury and right hemisphere language disorder. The volume also moves beyond these well-established populations to include conditions such as congenital visual impairment and non-Alzheimer dementias, in which there are also pragmatic impairments. Through the use of conversational and linguistic data, the reader can see how pragmatic disorders impact on the communication skills of the clients who have them. The assessment and treatment of pragmatic disorders are examined, and chapters also address recent developments in the neuroanatomical and cognitive bases of these disorders.

Reviews

“The book helps us to understand differences in pragmatic disorders between children and adults and the interventions that may be used to treat these clients. … it can be a really valuable resource for graduate and undergraduate students as well as clinicians and researchers. The book is strongly recommended to all those who are interested in clinical pragmatics and to those who want to carry out further research in this developing area.” (Caterina Scianna, International Review of Pragmatics, Vol. 10, 2018)

“Louise Cummings’s edited volume, Research in Clinical Pragmatics, is without doubt a timely and welcome contribution to the field. Besides being a very informative volume, it will also appeal to a wide readership. Although the book will appeal primarily to clinicians, the manner in which the contributors have explained and simplified specialised technical items has resulted in this volume being accessible to readers from different fields of inquiry and background knowledge.” (Vahid Parvaresh, Journal of Linguistics, August, 2017)
