Diagnosis and Evaluation in Speech Pathology presents practical, useful assessment issues and tips on specific speech-language-swallowing disorders; provides flexible ways to assess the disorders through both standardized and non-standardized appraisal; and guides readers’ attention through a wide variety of learning tools, including new assessment materials available commercially through research publications and via social media, learning objectives and self-assessment questions for each chapter, and concluding remarks that wrap up the information covered.
