About the Book

On Neurogenic Communication Disorders: Original Short Stories and Case Studies is a unique book. It is a collection of short stories and case studies about persons with neurogenic communication disorders. The short stories are based on people I have known as friends, acquaintances, or patients. The characters in the short stories are based on one person or a composite of several individuals. I have placed these characters in interesting fictional situations which provide a vehicle for showing their mettle in dealing with their communication disorders and life challenges. The case studies are based on actual clinical cases and situations, but literary license has been taken to make them reader-friendly and interesting. This book of short stories and case studies is not a scholarly clinical treatise on neurogenic communication disorders, nor does it aspire to be one. While I believe it provides accurate information about neurogenic communication disorders, it is a work of fiction and simply a different vehicle for understanding these complex and often devastating medical conditions.
