Mailing of the bumper Spring 11 issue of Speech & Language Therapy in Practice is now complete and, as always, it is blooming with practical and inspiring articles.
We have a new arrival, Whose goal is it anyway?, a series for 2011 on goal negotiation from Sam Simpson and Cathy Sparkes. Journal club continues with a look at critically appraising systematic reviews, Editor's choice is on stammering, and Boundary issues is back with the ethical minefield when work and home life meet.
Other articles are on:
- putting people with learning disabilities in control of where they live and with whom
- introducing TOPICC (Targeted Observation of Pragmatics in Children's Conversations)
- reducing the risk of choking in adults with learning disabilities or mental illness
- training people with aphasia and their carers to communicate effectively beyond therapy
- resources for being an effective national specialist adviser.
And, as you would expect, we have fantastic reader offers (for NDP3 Speech Builder, Grow Words, and Independence Through Communication) as well as reviews of books and resources and more low cost ideas for groups in Here's one I made earlier.
New subscribers to Speech & Language Therapy in Practice should note that, in addition to the 4 issues for 2011, they will get a free copy of the Winter 10 issue.
