With many more exercises, writing samples, and online resources, Professional Writing in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Fourth 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 (review of grammar, spelling, punctuation, semantics, and sentence structure), evidence-based writing and citing sources, ethics related to professional writing, writing diagnostic and clinical reports, and writing for professional career advancement.
