TREATMENT RESOURCE MANUAL FOR SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY, 4th edition is an ideal text for students entering into a clinical practicum. Not only are basic therapy and information reporting techniques discussed, but intervention strategies for working with unique child and adult client populations are covered in a well-written and concise manner. The new edition has been completely revised and contains significantly expanded information on language disorders in children including early intervention, coverage of the response-to-intervention (RTI) service delivery model, metalinguistic skills, and appropriate instructional strategies for the development of writing skills. An expanded discussion of issues in articulation and phonology disorders including treatment models and goal selection strategies is also included. Updated references, evidence-based practice, and additional resources are provided for all chapters, making the fourth edition of Treatment Resource Manual for Speech-Language Pathology the most comprehensive text available on the treatment of communication disorders.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook for a graduate course introducing speech-language pathology students to intervention. Roth and Worthington (both hearing and speech sciences, U. of Maryland-College Park) take into account that students are now reaching graduate school without any clinical experience, and many from other undergraduate majors besides speech- language pathology. Rather than try to catalogue the many techniques, they describe therapy targets and activities as illustrations of basic intervention practice and starting points in the therapeutic process. No date is mentioned for the first edition; the second updates information and incorporates reactions to the first. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
