In this widely popular resource, pre- and in-service speech and language pathologists focus on the process of clinical diagnosis and evaluation in action, using the IEP as an illustrative tool. Each chapter tells the story of a student with a specific disorder, considers the goals and objectives for that student, and presents tips for adapting and modifying instruction to meet that individual child’s learning needs. The book presents practical, useful assessment issues and tips on specific speech-language-swallowing disorders; provides flexible ways to assess the disorders through both standardized and non-standardized appraisal; and guides readers’ attention through a wide variety of learning tools, including new assessment materials available commercially through research publications and via social media, learning objectives and self-assessment questions for each chapter, and concluding remarks that wrap up the information covered. The material also aids the clinician with accountability to third party payors. The new Ninth Edition of Diagnosis and Evaluation in Speech Pathology has been updated throughout and includes a new chapter on adult dysphagia and pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders; a new chapter on issues of head and neck cancer and alaryngeal speech rehabilitation; a revised chapter on report writing; current clinical insights into diagnosing and evaluating communications disorders, and two new Appendices, one showing how to conduct oral peripheral examinations and the other presenting standard reading passages, which can be used in various types of assessment.
