PART I encompasses concepts and factors common to all disorders of communication.

PART II considers both the person with a hearing loss and his hearing organs as they relate to anatomy, physiology, pathology, psychology, speech, diagnosis, and treatment.

PART III includes writings on the origin, nature, uses, troubles, and means of modification of the voice in the communication process.

PART IV gives the most comprehensive understanding of speech disorders under any one cover — sampling materials from medicine, dentistry, psychiatry, psychology, sociology, and education.

PART V discusses language and its disorders.”
