"The information is accurate and the charts, illustrations and forms are also excellent. I would use this book often in my practice."
"I would require this text as an introductory text for students. But I would also recommend this text as a resource for SLPs in the field, who may find it very useful with clients who are low incidence on their caseload, or who are changing positions and need to be refreshed if the population they are serving changes."
