Clinical Methods and Practicum in Speech-Language Pathology, 5th Edition

For student clinicians and clinical supervisors alike, clinical practicum in speech-language pathology is a learning experience that involves clearly defined expectations, ethical principles, and effective methods of treatment. This comprehensive resource provides a well-rounded discussion of the clinical practicum, including basic organization and competency guidelines, ethical and behavioral conduct between the student and supervisor and with clients, and multicultural issues encountered in clinical practice. Also presented are effective clinical methods in the treatment, control, and maintenance of communicative disorders.


“This book is a helpful, long-awaited resource for students preparing for their practicum and the supervisors responsible for guiding them.” –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I ordered the international version of this book, which includes all the same content as the U.S. version. I was a little hesitant to order the international edition, but I thoroughly looked it over and compared it to the non-international version and they were both exactly the same – they had the same words in the same places on the same page numbers. Overall, this book provides a nice overview for students and beginning clinicians, including ASHA requirements, how to formulate target goals and objectives, etc.

This book is good but was a little too detailed. I have found other books that I like more (unless this is required for a class).
