Overview

Clinical Observation: A Guide for Students in Speech, Language, and Hearing provides structure and focus for students completing pre-clinical or early clinical observation as required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Whether used in a course on observation and clinical processes, or as a self-guide to the observation process, this practical hands-on workbook will give a clear direction for guided observations and provide students with an understanding of what they are observing, why it is relevant, and how these skills serve as a building-block to their future role as clinicians.

With clear and concise language, this reader friendly guide includes a quick review of background knowledge for each aspect of the clinical process, exercises and activities to check understanding and guide observation, and questions for reflection to help students apply their observation to their current studies and their future work as speech-language pathologists. This journaling process will help students connect what they observe with the knowledge they have gained from classes, textbooks, and journal articles. Thought provoking activities may be completed, revisited, and redone, and multiple activities are provided for each observation. This is a must-have resource for supervisors, students, and new clinicians.

Clinical Observation: A Guide for Students in Speech, Language, and Hearing reviews the principles of good practice covering ASHA’s Big Nine areas of competency.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Adrienne B. Hancock, PhD (George Washington University)
Description: This is essentially a workbook designed to engage students in thinking about their clinical observations prior to graduate study in speech-language pathology. In addition to descriptions of the therapeutic processes, this book includes guided observation and reflection of specific areas (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's "Big Nine"). There is relatively little to guide observations of assessment.
Purpose: The authors aim to engage students by incorporating fill-in-the-blanks, journaling, and even crossword puzzles.
Audience: Ideally, students would use a book of this sort while obtaining their required 25 hours of clinical observation prior to clinical practicum.
Features: The book strikes a nice balance between chapters on general clinical skills (e.g., goal writing, data collection) and chapters more focused on observations about specific disorder areas (e.g., features of voice addressed in the session). This book is small and spiral-bound, making it convenient to bring to observations.
Assessment: Since this book is specifically designed to maximize learning from clinical observations, there is little information about practicum protocols and clinical roles; rather, it focuses on observations of treatment sessions.
