Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celia J. Bassich, MA, CCC-SLP(Towson University)
Description: This book describes group treatment strategies for adults with aphasia, right hemisphere damage, traumatic brain injury, and motor speech disorders. The strategies focus on treatment of functional communication skills.
Purpose: The editor meets the stated objective, which is to provide specific information about how expert clinicians successfully use group therapy to treat neurogenic communication disorders.
Audience: The format is appropriate for the intended audience, which includes undergraduate and graduate SLP students, clinicians who treat patients with neurogenic communication disorders, and professionals in other health related disciplines. The author, an experienced clinician, has brought together contributions from 25 expert clinicians from the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.
Features: A variety of group treatment programs are described with respect to philosophy, entry and discharge criteria, client assessment, establishment of treatment goals, documentation of progress, clinical techniques used, and reimbursement issues. Particularly well covered are programs for aphasia. Group techniques are described for a variety of settings including specific subacute clinics, skilled nursing facilities, and university clinics. Contributors provide assessment procedures, sample lesson plans, specific score sheets to track outcome measures, forms for documentation of programs, and detailed description of therapy activities and techniques. Actual case examples and practical advice regarding reimbursement issues are included. This book also serves as a thorough reference for assessment and treatment of functional communication skills.
Assessment: Given the recent changes in the reimbursement of services which require SLPs in subacute and skilled nursing facilities to do more with less, this book is a highly informative and valuable resource. In comparison with other books in the field, it is more comprehensive because it includes treatment plans for all types of neurogenic populations and includes more references with respect to functional communication, quality of life, wellness, and adjustment issues. It fills a void in the neurogenics literature and would be an excellent addition to the library of SLPs who treat the neurogenic population.
