The best-selling Here's How to Do Therapy: Hands-on Core Skills in Speech-Language Pathology is back in a newly revised second edition. Unique in design and content, this text and accompanying DVD provide a logical and manageable approach to therapy and help students and practitioners enhance their clinical skills through guided practice of key concepts.

Twenty-eight fundamental therapeutic skills are presented in a "workshop format" using organizers, definitions/demonstrations, think-out-loud questions, prompts for practice, post-organizers, and more. This second edition also includes an all new chapter that examines the concept of "critical incidents" in learning speech-language therapy and details 18 classroom activities for clinical supervisors and instructors.

The 80-minute DVD significantly enhances the tutorial aspect of this text by presenting visual demonstrations of core therapeutic skills. One-to-three-minute vignettes give students real-life examples of implementing these skills and two extended DVD sessions demonstrate the basics of language-based therapy, highlighting articulation and language intervention.

Here's How to Do Therapy, Second Edition, is an ideal reference for providing effective therapy for both clinical practicum and management courses, as well as for clinicians engaged in SLP intervention.

Debra Dwight

Debra Dwight is an Alabama native and received a bachelor’s degree in Speech Therapy and a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Alabama, Mobile. Her master’s and doctoral degrees in Speech-Language Pathology were received from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, where Debra developed an interest in clinical teaching. Although she worked as a college/university faculty member in different positions over the past ten years, Debra describes herself as a clinical practitioner due to her constant desire to impact the quality of service delivery in the speech-language profession. She has worked as a speech-language pathologist in public schools, as a university clinical supervisor, as director of a pre-K special needs program, and as a college instructor, and assistant professor. She currently serves as Director of Speech-Language Pathology Programs at University of West Georgia, Carrollton.

Her desire to improve the quality of services provided by speech-language professionals led Dr. Dwight to develop a practical method for teaching basic, hands-on, core skills to university students majoring in Speech-Language Pathology. Drawing from three decades of combined academic, clinical, and supervisory experiences, she developed the text, Here’s How to do Therapy: Hands-On Core Skills in Speech-Language Pathology, a practical guide for all Speech-Language Pathology professionals.
