Translational Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology: Essays in Honor of Dr. Sadanand Singh

 Translational research has been present and ongoing for decades and yet, in spite of The National Institutes of Health promoting this “bench-to-bedside” approach since 2006, its adoption by the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology has been relatively scant and mostly individually approached. Although efforts have been made in this direction by individuals, the communication sciences and disorders professions are somewhat behind the curve in not addressing this issue directly.

For practicing clinicians, researchers, and students taking research seminars,Translational Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology examines the broad fields of laboratory, clinical, and public health research. Interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary in scope, it aims to expedite the translation of related discoveries into new and improved standards of care. This series of short essays also honors Dr. Sadanand Singh, the late CEO and Founder of Plural Publishing, Inc., who encouraged innovation throughout his career. All royalties will be donated to the San Diego Foundation/Dr. Sadanand Singh Fund.

An expert management coach with over thirty years of experience helping professionals get to the next stages of their careers, identifies—and helps readers break—the 12 unconscious habits and behaviors that are holding them back from the corner office.

About the Book
For more than 30 years, Robert W. Goldfarb has advised and coached managers on five continents in organizations of every type who got to a certain level of success in their careers and then stalled. They were smart, had the right experience and a good track record, and had put in the time and energy to get them to where they were. But something was holding them back from getting to the highest level of management, and despite their obvious intelligence, they couldn't tell what it was.

Now, in the tradition of What Got You Here Won't Get You There, Robert Golfarb isolates the 12 top behaviors that mid- to upper-level managers exhibit at work that keep them from getting to the corner office. Some of these traits—a drive for results, strong knowledge of their industries, and networking with their peers—may have gotten them where they were, but need to be altered and adapted in order for them to get to the higher levels of management. The book is organized in an ingenious "What You Do" and "What Others See" structure, helping readers truly understand how their well-intentioned behaviors can wind up sabotaging their careers. Using case histories and actual examples from corporations, along with specific, actionable strategies for breaking these bad behaviors, Robert Goldfarb will help professionals everywhere break through their career plateaus and break into the corner office. These self-defeating behaviors are:

Not demonstrating their true personal integrity. Not taking enough time to make sure their boss looks good. A laser-like focus on getting the job done well without appreciating the contributions of others. Using too much humor to build camaraderie and to foster collegial work environments. Lacking real passion for change. Relying solely on intellectual analysis with little reliance on “gut” feelings Focusing on problems rather than solutions A reluctance to properly manage former peers and supervisors. Under-appreciating the enormous value of diversity in the workplace. Not fully acknowledging the contributions of others on their teams. Always swinging for the fences and winning every battle, instead of taking a long range view of the situation.
 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

How to Stop Stuttering The logical and traditional way to approach stuttering is to try to treat, stop, overcome or manage it. The only problem is, this way often does not work. This guide will present to you another view, one that I think you'll find far more effective and successful in helping you achieve your fluency and life goals. 

You know that you are capable of being, doing and having more. You know that you are intelligent and are able or want to be able to contribute more to your job, class, family, community and world. But, something has been holding you back. You've felt limited, even controlled by stuttering. Well, the great news is that you can learn to start speaking more smoothly, fluently and confidently, but only IF you approach it from a completely different direction. 

My name is Michael Williams and I'm the founder of The Start Speaking Training Center and the PRO90D Speech System, and I stuttered for over 20 years. In this guide, I'm going to share with you no only how I have used stuttering as a springboard to excellent speech, but, how I am helping thousands of people around the globe do the same. 

If you are truly ready to make a change, and have an open mind, I believe you WILL find something in this guide that will truly transform your entire life. And, I don't say that lightly. This guide contains the pure essence of all of the techniques and strategies I use everyday to help people just like you unlock their speaking potential. This is not hype, or theory. My approach to how to stop stuttering draws from the fields of Neuroscience, Neuroplasticity, Accelerated Learning Strategies, High Performance Training and real life experience. May this guide be a true blessing to you and everyone your life touches.
