One of the most important aspects of our practice in speech-language pathology is making sure our assessments and interventions are evidence-based and are in line with the current research. This binder is intended to be used as a tool to guide you in your decision-making.
It is intended to serve as a guide and summary and is, by no means, a replacement for the actual articles and research and is not intended to be an exhaustive list. Please read the articles listed for full descriptions.
At the beginning of each section, you will find introductory information about various disorders and some assessment principles for certain areas. These are followed by charts for the most common areas of our field in the school, clinic, and hospital settings. In each chart are the therapy techniques for that area, the intended population, a description of the technique, the evidence showing it to be effective or ineffective, and other helpful notes.
This binder could be used as a reference for day-to-day practice, when planning and implementing IEP goals, when addressing parent/employer concerns or questions, when studying for the Praxis exam, when you need a new or different technique to try, or when you have a particularly challenging case and need a starting point.
The following areas are included:
What is Evidence-Based Practice
Key Steps to Evidence-Based Practice
Overview of Assessment/Management of School-Age Population
Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Receptive and Expressive Language
Childhood Apraxia of Speech
A list of apps for each area is also included. Find out the evidence behind your favorite apps!
