The methods by which a student becomes a speech and language therapist have developed since the 1970s and have been influenced by different models of higher and professional education. Although it is comparatively easy to change an aspect of course content, for example to increase the number of learning hours on autism, the means by which the student learns to become a competent professional in practice are more complex. This text discusses some of the exciting ways we are examining issues in professional education. It covers actual content (for example the introduction of dysphagia to the curriculum), new methods for learning (problem-based learning and information technology developments), how speech and language therapists develop competence and what is critical in the transition to becoming a qualified therapist. The longstanding placement problem is addressed by innovative work using different professional learning models, such as peer placements and school-based placements. The reader is provided with detailed practical advice about how to approach these models. The book represents some of the current work in universities and speech and language services in the UK and reveals the creativity and commitment to an expanding subject area.

This book is written by a team of speech and language therapists from The Wolfson Neurorehabilitation Centre. It is intended for practitioners working with patients who have acquired communication disorders resulting from brain injury: aphasia, cognitive-communication disorder, dysarthria, apraxia. The authors believe that a therapeutic programme should have it's foundations in the linguistic, non-verbal, neurological and neurospsychological perspective of the patient's difficulties. The approach the team has developed consists of several different strangs of therapy, with each strand representing an element of the rehabilitation process: assessment; goal planning; specific individualised treatment; education; friends and family; and psychosocial adjustment. This book describes these strands, illustrates in a user-friendly way how each one relates to therapy, and fives some practical ideas of how practitioners might work within them. Each chapter begins with the guiding principles and evidence bases that underlie the rationale for one particular strand of therapy. They then follow examples of practice and case studies of a real-life example of each strand. This book describes a speech and language therapy service that aims to be responsive to patients' needs and develops tailor-made intervention programmes that arer unique to each individual. It includes CD containing assessments and practical tools.
