Speech Practice Material: From Sounds to Dialogues features materials that are not based on or related to any particular treatment program. They are intended to be versatile, flexible, and used in many ways for many populations. Some of the stimuli are tried-and-true with some new variations. Some particular therapy techniques and variations on how to use and alter the material are suggested in this book, but no particular theory or step-by-step approach is recommended or supported. Decisions about whom to use it with, how, and why, are in the hands, judgment, and creativity of the clinician. This book invites therapists to think critically and study and apply the best evidence and practice guidelines from the current professional literature.
"The author covers stimuli presentation from the most basic reflexive level to the higher levels of more functional and abstract communication. The best feature of the book is the fact that it is useful in a variety of contexts. ... This book has made my job as a clinical instructor so much easier, as much of what we in the clinic need to provide clients is available in one place."
