Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Judith M. Wingate, MS (University of Florida)
Description: This workbook is designed to accompany commonly used textbooks in assessment in speech-language pathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide undergraduate and graduate students practical experience in general assessment procedures.
Audience: It provides group and individual activities for students pertinent to basic areas of assessment, including interviewing, test administration and scoring, and report writing.
Features: Topics covered include interviewing techniques, report writing, obtaining historical information, and an introduction to oral-motor examination. The workbook, while not designed to provide in-depth instruction relative to specific disorders, discusses child language assessment, language sample analysis, discourse analysis, aphasia assessment, and articulation testing. A module is also included on multicultural awareness. This text is intended for flexibility of presentation. The format was designed with extra space to allow the pages to be punched and placed in a binder, facilitating the addition of materials and changes in the order of sessions if desired. The objectives for each module are clearly stated along with suggested materials and activities. When appropriate, computer resources such as software and Internet websites are included .
Assessment: The author has done an excellent job of compiling basic, practical information for speech-language pathology students in the area of assessment. This workbook would be an asset to undergraduate or early graduate student training. Some of the information would also be useful for students just beginning their practicum experiences.
