This book challenges readers to create not copy. Readers learn through a hands-on approach to analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and create evidence based practices with the guidance of over 120 digital video clips. These clips are accompanied by interactive forms for readers to evaluate the clips and then create their own unique interventions.
By selecting challenging treatment targets to change the brain, this book revolutionizes how we treat children with speech sound disorders. This results in impressive gains in communication skills at a time when the child's neuroplasticity is at a high level.
In this book, learning is an active and enjoyable process for the reader. An ultimate goal is to empower the reader to help children develop self-efficacy and a life-long love of learning.
We know that many of the children we treat with communication impairments face greater challenges. Developing a belief that they can overcome challenges, through their own personal efforts, matters.
