The leading book on intervention methods in speech-language pathology!
Now with more online supplementary materials!

With major content updates and many more supporting online materials, the seventh edition of the Treatment Resource Manual for Speech-Language Pathology is an accessible and reliable source of basic treatment information and techniques for a wide range of speech and language disorders. This detailed, evidence-based manual includes complete coverage of common disorder characteristics, treatment approaches, reporting techniques, and patient profiles for child and adult clients.

Divided into two sections, the first focuses on preparing for effective interventions, and includes the basic principles of speech-language therapies including various reporting systems and techniques. The second part, the bulk of the book, is devoted to treatments for specific communication disorders, including speech sound disorders, pediatric language disorders, autism spectrum disorder, adult aphasia and traumatic brain injury (TBI), motor speech disorders, dysphagia, stuttering, voice disorders, and alaryngeal speech. The last three chapters focus on effective counseling skills, cultural competence and considerations, and contemporary professional issues, including critical thinking, telepractice, simulation technologies, and coding and reimbursement.

Treatment Resource Manual for Speech-Language Pathology, Seventh Edition is an ideal resource for academic courses on intervention and clinical methods in graduate speech-language programs and as a more practical supplementary text to the more traditional theoretical books used for undergraduate clinical methods courses.  It is also helpful as a study guide for certification and licensing exams, and a handy manual for practicing clinicians in need of a single resource for specific therapy techniques and materials for a wide variety of communication disorders.
