This clinical reference provides an in-depth look at the tests and measurements used by speech-language pathologists for patient assessment. Rather than being merely a compendium of common tests, this text includes the theoretical framework behind each type of assessment as well as procedural and referential information. Topics covered include differential diagnosis of communication disorders, scoring conventions of different test instruments, and language assessment instruments for both children and adults.
