Each chapter provides information on the 'Theoretical Basis of the Treatment', 'Outline of the Treatment', 'Scientific Evidence for the Treatment', 'Advantages and Disadvantages of the Treatment', 'Planned Future Empirical Development', and conclude with an in-depth critical review.
This book is a must-have resource for speech and language pathologists, researchers and educators worldwide.
