IEP Goal Writing for Speech-Language Pathologists: Utilizing State Standardsfamiliarizes the speech-language pathologist (SLP) with specific Early Learning Standards (ELS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as well as the speech-language skills necessary for students to be successful with the school curriculum. It also describes how to write defensible Individualized Education Plan (IEP) goals that are related to the ELS and CCSS.

SLPs work through a set of steps to determine a student's speech-language needs. First, an SLP needs to determine what speech-language skills are necessary for mastery of specific standards. Then, the SLP determines what prerequisite skills are involved for each targeted speech-language skill. Finally, there is a determination of which steps to mastery need to be followed. It is through this process that an SLP and team of professionals can appropriately develop interventions and an effective IEP.

The text takes an in-depth look at the following speech-language areas: vocabulary, questions, summarize, compare and contrast, main idea and details, critical thinking, pragmatics, syntax and morphology, and articulation and phonological processes. These areas were selected because they are the most commonly addressed skills of intervention for students aged three to twenty-one with all levels of functioning. For each listed area, the text analyzes the prerequisite skills and the corresponding steps to mastery. It provides a unique, step-by-step process for transforming the steps to mastery into defensible IEP goals.

The key is to remember that the goal must be understandable, doable, measurable, and achievable. This text provides clear guidelines of quantifiable building blocks to achieve specific goals defined by the student's IEP. School-based SLPs are instrumental in helping students develop speech and language skills essential for mastery of the curriculum and standards. All SLPs working with school-aged children in public schools, private practice, or outpatient clinics will benefit from the information in this text.

The Hearing Sciences, Third Edition addresses all topics critical to understanding the hearing sciences: acoustics, basic instrumentation, anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, and psychoacoustics. The text is intended for undergraduate courses in hearing science and to augment the graduate AuD curriculum.

Basic and intermediate chapters are targeted to undergraduate students. Intermediate and advanced chapters are appropriate for AuD instruction. Advanced chapters summarize key points from introductory chapters, so assignment of those earlier chapters is not required if the student has previously had a survey course in hearing science. Direct relevance to clinical audiology is featured. For example, the text contains comprehensive explanation of the active mechanisms of the cochlea and relates this to otoacoustic emissions and hearing loss.

The writing is straightforward and clear. Each chapter includes an introduction, summary, and review questions. "Clinical Correlate" boxes engage the student by demonstrating the relationships between the hearing sciences and clinical audiology.

 A Guide to School Services in Speech-Language Pathology, Third Edition serves as an introductory overview for the college student who is ready to embark on his or her school-based student teaching experience and thus is ideal for instructors of methods courses preparing practicum students for school-based experiences. Not only is it an excellent text for novices to the field, but it is also a very useful resource for the practicing, school-based speech-language pathologist.

Beginning with history related to school-based speech-language pathology services -- including a discussion of legal mandates (e.g., the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, No Child Left Behind Act, Every Student Succeeds Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act) -- the text then delves into a description of service delivery models; an introduction to the concept of a workload analysis approach to caseload standards in schools and example implementation strategies; a display of concrete, real-life success stories; and an offering of strategies for using evidence-based practice, proactive behavior management, conflict resolution, professional collaboration, conferencing and counseling skills, cultural competencies, goal writing, informal assessment procedures, and creating testing accommodations. A new chapter provides the evidence base for links between language, literacy, and the achievement of school standards. This chapter is a must-read for every school speech-language pathologist.

Real-life scenarios based on experiences shared by public school speech-language pathologists give the reader concrete examples upon which to scaffold the complex professional concepts. Chapter summaries provide an overview of the major points presented. Questions at the end of each chapter are designed to engage the reader in analysis and comprehension of material, and vocabulary related to each chapter is conveniently defined at the start of each chapter so that the reader can better grasp the subject matter within.
