This unique manual emphasises practical assessment and treatment, advice and information, filling a significant gap in the availability of suitable resources in this field. The approach is based on behavioural principles and a hierarchy of stages of confident speaking originally conceived by Anthony Glassberg.

Starts with a summary of the literature and theory, followed by detailed ideas on assessment and management, with accompanying material that can be photocopied. Case examples and a discussion about progress, transfer and discharge are included.

Frequently asked questions; General assessment considerations and implications; Preliminary investigation; Child interview and assessment; Creating the right environment: advice for home and school; General treatment considerations; Overview of the treatment progression; A structured treatment programme; Eliciting speech for the first time/Generalising speech across people and settings/Effective practice; Parent and teacher support; Letting go; Illustrations of intervention.

With more than 100 graded communication activities for individuals and groups, this practical book is an excellent resource for health professionals and activity providers. The majority of activities require little or no preparation and can be adapted to suit different abilities.
