Overview

Survival Guide for the Beginning Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition will guide you when taking your first clinical steps toward a career as a speech-language pathologist. Graduate and undergraduate students, as well as beginning therapists, will find this book useful and easy-to-understand. It provides realistic, practical, and comprehensive overviews of clinical problems that are often encountered by beginning clinicians and offers solutions to those problems. It also prepares you for what you will experience along the way. This text does not focus on the numerous principles and theories which underlie various aspects of the clinical process because these are thoroughly covered in undergraduate and graduate courses. The second edition has expanded and updated information on many topics, including parent conferences and the concomitant reports, group therapy and play therapy, preparing for public schools, and more. Writing quality reports remains a major focus of the book. Drawing on her more than 30 years of experience, the author teaches the ins and outs of report writing. She provides many real-world examples of reports, showing what to do and what not to do. You'll make the transition from theory to practice much easier using this book as your guide. Let this book help you avoid common pitfalls and provide you with a solid foundation for your practice—from the very first day in the clinic.
