This comprehensive book ties strong academic foundations directly to their clinical application for speech/language therapists working with speech sound disorders. Each chapter presents tools to help readers bridge the gap between theoretical issues and clinical applications by presenting Clinical Applications, Clinical Exercises, Case Studies, and a section called Think Critically, which asks students to further apply specific clinical concepts. Test Yourself multiple choice questions appear at the end of each chapter and are ideal for review and assessment of the knowledge presented in the chapters, and Further Readings allow readers to continue to expand their knowledge.
