Professional Writing in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Third Edition is an excellent resource for students of communication sciences and disorders. It is often used as a textbook for courses in professional writing, clinical methods, and professional issues. Throughout the text, the authors use anecdotal material, self-help questions, and humor to illustrate that learning to be a better professional writer does not require drudgery.

The authors cover a spectrum of subjects related to professional writing, including

  • rules of writing
  • evidence-based writing
  • ethics of professional writing
  • use of the library
  • use and abuse of the Internet
  • writing for oral presentations
