Publisher Comments:

How can computers help speech-language pathologists improve intervention and assessment? Now there are practical, nontechnical answers in one easy-to-follow book. You'll learn new ways of using computers to benefit the people you serve, and you'll discover ready-to-use strategies for making the most of computer technology. Paula Cochran, one of ASHA's leading computer experts, guides you through key competencies that help you

  • use computers to improve the language and literacy skills of children and adults
  • use computer-based materials to improve communication
  • generate personalized clinical materials to enhance intervention
  • supplement the feedback you give individuals with computer-based visuals or audio
  • adapt computer access and maximize clinical use of handheld computers and Internet resources
  • streamline diagnosis of communication disorders with computer-based instruments

To help you master the competencies, you'll find examples of clinical activities and extensive suggestions for matching current software to therapy goals. With the help of this timely guidebook, you'll harness the power of today's technology to conduct more effective assessment and intervention for people with communication disorders.

Note to instructors: Exercises and questions for discussion make this an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in speech-language pathology courses.

Book News Annotation:

Cochran (communication disorders, Truman State U., Kirksville, Missouri) has published and presented extensively on the clinical use of computers and how to integrate them into teaching and intervention. In this text, she helps preservice and in-service speech-language pathologists learn how to use new technologies effectively in speech and language assessment and intervention activities. Coverage includes an overview of ten key clinical computing competencies--such as using a computer as an instructor, as a context for conversation, to generate therapy materials, as a feedback device--followed by practical explanations of how to master the competencies.
