Description

For students taking courses in speech pathology assessment and diagnosis or clinicians wishing to keep up to date on their constantly evolving field. 

A popular, practical, and comprehensive text that approaches the diagnosis and evaluation of speech and language with a special focus on the relationship between clinician and client. Diagnosis and Evaluation in Speech Pathology provides readers with a practical process approach to the diagnosis and evaluation of speech and language disorders. Equally helpful to students in training and practicing clinicians alike, this engaging resource develops a rationale for each type of assessment, including both standardized and non-standardized approaches. Each chapter highlights the most updated literature, clinical procedures and technological advances, while emphasizing diagnosis as an initial step in defining a communication disorder and  while focusing on evaluation as an ongoing assessment process to monitor progress on treatment goals. Organized by communication disorder, this text makes for a vital reference, while case examples and real-world vignettes help readers best understand clinical skills with interviewing, report writing, and multicultural issues in assessment.
