"This is the second edition of Introduction to Clinical Methods in Communication Disorders which originally published in 2002. Like the first edition, this textbook guides SLPs through the entire clinical experience, including the process of assessment using a variety of instruments, sampling of communicative behaviors, and planning and implementing interventions. The chapters provide introductory and background information and also address current issues such as multiculturalism and technological advances. The book discusses a wide range of clinical approaches (pull out, consultation, collaboration) in a variety of settings (hospitals, schools, etc.) and shows how they apply across communication disorders. Based on standards mandated by ASHA, this second edition serves as an essential start to mastering the science and art of clinical practice"--Amazon.
