Overview

Clinical Observation in Communication Sciences and Disorders is a textbook written for undergraduate students studying Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) who are beginning to obtain clinical observation hours. Designed as an introduction to the process of clinical observation, this text takes a global approach in addressing the development of observation skills that are necessary for students to understand and integrate into their clinical practices and careers.

The book aims to provide a manual and workbook for instructors and students exploring the importance of clinical observation and its role in health care services, its historical context, philosophical underpinnings, and instructional strategies. Observation is vital to the communication sciences and disorders field, and this work presents a multi-media guide to clinical observation that has not been offered until now.
