The courier has just been to take the authors' copies of the Spring 10 issue which means mailing is now complete. Spring 10 includes the first of a new ethics series considering everyday events which need to be on our ethical radar screen. In 'Brought to (Face)book', Jois Stansfield and Frances McAleer think through some of the implications of social networking for speech and language therapists.
As well as reviews, reader offers and Editor's Choice, other content includes:
- adductor spasmodic dysphonia - the case for speech and language therapy (not Botox)
- using the East Kent Outcome System in community stroke teams
- Talking Mats facilitate an accurate mental state assessment
- Clifford Hughes' personal story of rediscovering his voice after a laryngectomy
- a debate on the value of cognitive therapy in dementia
- resources from the 'Every Child a Talker' programme
- training early years practitioners to teach attention and listening skills
- suitable books for working with small groups of children in education settings
- Here's one I made earlier with a dating theme
- in brief (choice of words; accessible information; direct therapy).
Hopefully all UK readers will receive their copies by the end of this week, with the air mail ones not taking much longer, and you can get reading!
