Ed. by Rhea Paul and Paul W. Cascella.

Paul and Cascella (communication disorders, Southern Connecticut State U.) present a text based on standards of the American Speech- Language-Hearing Association and the American Academy of Audiology that introduces clinical practice for communications disorders students so that they can make the transition to being a clinician. It describes what a clinician does, their environment, and general principles of ethics, public policy, cultural sensitivity, and respect for clients and families. In this edition, there is a new chapter on evidence-based decision making in communication intervention and more on current technological advances and multiculturalism. Assessment, physical examination, intervention, communication skills with clients and others, laws, rules, and regulations, and assistive technology are also covered. Some of the chapters have been contributed by other authors who work in speech- language pathology, communication disorders, audiology, education, and other fields.
