Speech-Language Pathology Assistants: A Resource Manual, Second Edition, is a practical, easy-to-use manual that can be used by both SLPAs and SLPA educators. The text defines the roles of SLPAs and their supervisors - offering additional insight into the scope of practice of an SLPA per current American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) recommendations—and includes discussions, strategies, and examples of real-world issues, such as using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and working with individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Also included within the chapters are "Things to Consider" sections, which address important factors and modifications that can enhance the effectiveness of treatment activities. For example, incorporating play, literacy, and speech sound remediation into treatment or modifying the clinical interface to enhance group therapy dynamics for children and adults. Initial chapters are devoted to specific aspects of an SLPA's development, such as chapters on ways SLPAs can enhance clinical service through understanding of goals, lesson plans, data collection, and note-writing. Likewise, chapters on professional practice offer insight into ethical problem-solving, presenting a professional image, developing mentoring relationships, working with culturally and linguistically diverse populations, and the use of self-reflection for self-improvement. These chapters are followed by key principles for SLPAs to incorporate in clinical services provided to specific populations and disorders. New to the Second Edition: This second edition contains relevant updates in the field of speech-language pathology and recent research and references throughout. Included are additional "A Day in the Life" stories of actual SLPAs—their daily activities, rewards and challenges they face, and their words of wisdom to fellow SLPAs. New to this edition are four important chapters applicable to the work of an SLPA. This includes a chapter specific to behavioral principles and the use of positive behavioral supports and intervention (PBIS). New chapters were added in the areas of early intervention and the important topic of language intervention in children—both of which are highly pertinent to the roles of most SLPAs. A chapter was also added to address key principles in service provision for adults with neurologic disorders, including an overview of common treatment approaches for the disorders of aphasia, right hemisphere brain dysfunction (RHBD), cognitive-communicative disorders associated with TBI, apraxia of speech, and dysarthria. Speech-Language Pathology Assistants: A Resource Manual, Second Edition is a key resource for enhancing skills and highlighting professional practice issues, for clinical practicum training or future employment. This is a text both SLPAs and SLPA educators will want to have on their bookshelves.

The methods by which a student becomes a speech and language therapist have developed since the 1970s and have been influenced by different models of higher and professional education. Although it is comparatively easy to change an aspect of course content, for example to increase the number of learning hours on autism, the means by which the student learns to become a competent professional in practice are more complex. This text discusses some of the exciting ways we are examining issues in professional education. It covers actual content (for example the introduction of dysphagia to the curriculum), new methods for learning (problem-based learning and information technology developments), how speech and language therapists develop competence and what is critical in the transition to becoming a qualified therapist. The longstanding placement problem is addressed by innovative work using different professional learning models, such as peer placements and school-based placements. The reader is provided with detailed practical advice about how to approach these models. The book represents some of the current work in universities and speech and language services in the UK and reveals the creativity and commitment to an expanding subject area.

A 1939 master's thesis that has become known as the "Tudor study" prompted Dr. Goldfarb and others to revisit the ethical consideration of this study as a means of exploring ethical issues in clinical and research practices in speech-language pathology today. Over sixty years ago, under the supervision of Wendell Johnson (one of the founders of the science of speech-language pathology), graduate student Mary Tudor conducted a study to examine the effect of verbal labeling on the frequency of disfluency in both children who stuttered and children who were fluent. The subjects came from an orphanage in Davenport, Iowa. Johnson'’s and Tudor'’s findings— - that they were allegedly able to induce stuttering in normally fluent children— - supported their hypothesis, but have also raised serious ethical concerns. In this book, Dr. Goldfarb has gathered the leading authorities in stuttering and, together, they investigate the Tudor study and, more broadly, ethics in scientific research, diagnosis, and treatment in the field of communication sciences. Students and clinicians alike will find the accounts within this book engaging, stimulating, and ultimately relevant.

Speech and language pathologists, like all professionals who claim to be scientific in their practice, make a public commitment to operate on the basis of knowledge derived in accordance with sound scientific standards. Yet students in communication disorders are given relatively little grounding in the fundamentals of science; indeed, they often receive implicit encouragement to rely on clinical wisdom. This pathbreaking text introduces the principles of critical scientific thinking as they relate to assessing communication problems, deciding about alternative approaches to intervention, and evaluating outcomes. The author provides many illustrative examples to help readers contextualize the ideas. Her clear presentation will help not only undergraduate and graduate students but also established professionals reason more effectively about what they are doing and why. Though the examples come from speech and language pathology, this illuminating and readable book constitutes a valuable resource for all clinical practitioners.
