In speech and language therapy, practices of assessment are often subdivided by clinical populations of interest and, as such, are diagnostically-driven. While this can be helpful to cultivate specialization, a salient feature of clinical practice is the breadth and variety of individuals served. Quite often, speech and language therapists see a wide range of diagnoses within a similar age group, or may switch age ranges during career transitions. This book gives specialized guidance for the generalist speech and language therapist, thus providing support at any career stage across populations.
The clinical toolkit provided in Assessment of Communication builds bridges for the speech and language therapist with illustrative descriptions of strengths-based and symptom-driven assessment practices. With this guide, the speech and language therapist will be empowered to assess and monitor all aspects of speech, language, and communication abilities across populations and lifespan using holistic, evidence-based and person-centred practices of assessment.
