It is a unique text that covers outcomes in speech-language pathology practices within the context of contemporary issues across work settings that include clinical practice, applied clinical research, and graduate education.

Key Features:

The only text that specifically focuses on outcome measurement in speech-language pathology Major themes from the first edition are revisited in light of the impact of contemporary issues and shifts in emphasis in outcomes, including: The prominence of the WHO-ICF as a conceptual model for intervention The impact of public policies and federal mandates Emphasis on value-based, cost-effective clinical healthcare services Growing transparency in organizational performance in accreditation processes The weight currently placed on patient satisfaction and patient-reported outcomes Outcomes assessment across stakeholders in school settings Challenges and revised perspectives on the application of evidence-based practice Increasing demand for applied effectiveness research to inform clinical practices Renewed reliance on single subject experimental designs in SLP intervention research and the application of N=1 research designs to clinical practice The growing emphasis on outcomes in graduate clinical education and supervision as well as in higher education

Directors and managers of clinical speech-language pathology programs in healthcare settings as well as clinical staff and supervisors will find this book to be a valuable desk reference and graduate students will use it as a key resource in the course of their studies.

 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
