About the Book

Professional Writing in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, now in its second edition, is an excellent resource for students of communication sciences and disorders. It is often used as a textbook for courses in clinical methods, introduction to research methods, and professional issues. Throughout the text, the authors use anecdotal material, self-help questions, and humor to illustrate that learning to be a better professional writer does not require drudgery.

For the second edition, the authors have updated the content to reflect changes in the most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition, as well as changes in the Graduate Record Exam and Praxis Exam. They also added a new chapter on English grammar.

Please note that the second edition also combines the 2009 textbook and the 2011 workbook (along with new and updated material as mentioned above), and substitutes the previous CD with a user-friendly companion website.
