Burrus and Willis (speech-language pathology, Auburn U.) teach beginning speech-language pathology students about the types of written and verbal communication they will encounter in university clinics, medical settings, and public schools: diagnostic reports, daily treatment plans, treatment reports, progress notes, professional correspondence, and electronic and verbal communication. They also discuss ethics, confidentiality, and safeguarding communications. This edition has a new chapter on working with multicultural clients and their families; more coverage of the basic counseling of families, caregivers, and patients in terms of diagnostic results, recommendations, referrals, therapy goals, home programs, and progress; a chart of grammatical errors; information on writing measurable short-term objectives and documenting data collection and cueing hierarchies; short and long-term graphing examples; report examples to include prognoses; certification procedures to become licensed; and an appendix of medical abbreviations.
