Widely recognized as one of the most valuable resources in speech-language pathology, the respected Hegde's PocketGuide to Treatment in Speech-Language Pathology is now in its third edition. Designed as a companion volume to the PocketGuide to Assessment in Speech-Language Pathology, Third Edition, it provides clinical practitioners and students in communication sciences and disorders a quick reference for treatment techniques. The most desirable features of a specialized dictionary of terms, clinical resource book, and textbook of treatment are combined in this single, easy-to-access resource. Treatment techniques are provided in a "do this" format. Information not directly related to treatment techniques has been moved to the new PocketGuide to Communication Disorders, allowing for expanded coverage of treatment techniques and the addition of important new entries, making this edition more relevant and useful than ever!

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrea Handscomb, M.A., CCC-SLP(George Washington University)
Description: This guide provides a dictionary of terminology related to speech-language disorders and treatment along with a basic overview of intervention procedures. Chapters are organized alphabetically, main entries are bolded, and cross-referenced entries are underlined. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to enable clinicians to access practical treatment strategies quickly.
Audience: This is a wonderful resource for undergraduate and graduate students who are entering the field and are less familiar with terminology and basic intervention methods. It is also a good reference for speech-language pathologists whose caseload consists of a wide variety of patients. Furthermore, educators, physical therapists, occupational therapists, doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of speech-language pathology treatment would benefit from owning this guide. The author, a professor of communication sciences and disorders at California State University-Fresno, is an expert in the field and has published multiple books in the field. Readers benefit from his ability to condense and organize his extensive knowledge into a clear reference.
Features: This useful handbook provides a wide range of information in an easily accessible format. It covers fundamental treatment approaches, categorized by disorder. The best feature is arguably the inclusion of step-by-step treatment method(s) in each entry. One shortcoming is that the book provides limited additional resources.
Assessment: This guide provides step-by-step treatment strategies, whereas intervention information in other resources becomes watered down in an attempt to cover etiology, evaluation, and treatment. The author of this guide, M. N. Hegde, instead divides this information into three separate yet complementary books (see Hegde's PocketGuide to Communication Disorders and Hegde's PocketGuide to Assessment in Speech-Language Pathology, 3rd edition (both Delmar, Cengage Learning, 2008)). To keep abreast of the most recent intervention strategies, it is worth getting this edition. If a reader is unfamiliar with a disorder or is not up to date with current best practices, this guide is a good starting point.
