    "I found it is easy to read and particularly liked the insightful section on leadership with strategies for time management and burn-out avoidance."

  • Lynn Ellwood, Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (2010):
    "... Vinson has developed an in-depth understanding of the broad scope of information needed by professional graduate students and beginning clinicians for the practice context. In this textbook, she brings together widely varied yet important content areas in one convenient resource."
