Speech Practice Material: From Sounds to Dialogues features materials that are not based on or related to any particular treatment program. They are intended to be versatile, flexible, and used in many ways for many populations. Some of the stimuli are tried-and-true with some new variations. Some particular therapy techniques and variations on how to use and alter the material are suggested in this book, but no particular theory or step-by-step approach is recommended or supported. Decisions about whom to use it with, how, and why, are in the hands, judgment, and creativity of the clinician. This book invites therapists to think critically and study and apply the best evidence and practice guidelines from the current professional literature. "Jack Thomas provides the materials for building treatment or clinical research tasks for a wide variety of speech problems. There is a wealth of materials here - more than needed for any single patient or speech disorder. They range from nuts and bolts (sounds and words) to major arches and frames (common expressions, figurative language, dialogues).Users of this manual should know that it has been developed by an outstanding, expert clinician who has treated a wide variety of communication disorders long enough to know what stands the test of time.

This manual is a well-stocked toolbox, one assembled by a clinician for clinicians and clinical researchers. Keep it handy. Use it wisely." --From the Foreword by Joseph R. Duffy, Ph.D
