This valuable reference is a cornerstone resource for clinicians working with the gamut of communication and language disorders. This new edition has a completely updated design, with the addition of a second color to highlight key content. The book has been updated to include two new chapters on foundation of assessment and multicultural issues in assessment to make this the most comprehensive resource manual on assessment in speech-language pathology. It continues to offer users a wide range of procedures and materials for obtaining and interpreting assessment data, and reporting assessment findings to clients, caregivers, and other professionals - all of which are directly applicable to clinical work and are useful instructional tools for students. To help the clinician and student access more specific disorder and assessment information, each chapter concludes with a section called Sources of Additional Information containing references and websites. This new edition comes with a free CD-ROM containing additional resources and the forms from the text in several formats for users to download, print and photocopy, and modify for individual clinical use.
