Clinical Assessment Workbook for Communication Sciences and Disorders provides students in speech-language pathology with a hands-on approach to learning the clinical assessment process. Throughout the workbook, the authors have combined basic assessment information with meaningful assignments to provide real-life applications. Each chapter is structured with a "who, what, why, when, where, and how" format to provide the most comprehensive coverage of assessment in clinical settings.
Topics covered range from referrals to the recommendation stage, and include processes such as standardized testing, report writing, billing, and insurance. The workbook covers the full range of communication disorders, including, speech sound disorders, voice, fluency, swallowing, language, and hearing.

"This is an excellent endeavor by these authors. The activities are exceptional and will promote student learning in a practical way. The organization of Who, What, Where, etc. is consistent in each chapter and will give the student a good format for considering assessment in each disorder area. Excellent activities and questions are at the end of the chapters. The workbook is very well written, clear, accurate, organized, easy to follow and understand. Students will appreciate these authors' efforts to help them learn about the assessment process."
Rosalie Marder Unterman, PhD, CCC-SLP, Associate Professor/Clinical Director, Speech-Language Pathology, Touro College (2018):
"I think this will be a very useful text for the beginning SLP. The style of asking organizational questions: who, what, why, when, where, how is used throughout the chapters. This consistency of presentation allows the novice reader to understand the different parameters of each topic. The basics of assessment are covered, as well as specifics relating to a wide variety of speech/language/hearing/swallowing disorders. The information is accurate and clearly relevant."

"I would recommend this textbook. The chapters are updated and include areas which ASHA addresses in standards. I would use this text in class because it asks the correct questions and provides the learner with updated information. I would recommend this text to students. Students want quick, easy information provided and professors want the ability to have good discussions . . . which each chapter provides. The information provided can be used for clinicians going into any work arena."
