Product information Speech Sound Disorders

An innovative and invaluable resource for students and professionals to effectively treat children with speech sound disorders

Children with speech sound disorders are at higher risk of academic failure, behavioral difficulties, motor impairments, language delays, and literacy deficits. Speech Sound Disorders: Comprehensive Evaluation and Treatment by Kelly Vess provides the necessary tools to use research-based practices when diagnosing and treating preschoolers. Sophisticated yet reader-friendly, this interactive book is certain to revolutionize the methodology therapists use to treat children with these disorders and globally improve outcomes.

Through a step-by-step process, readers will learn to critically review and evaluate research in practice. Guidance is provided on how to create educationally rich activities to comprehensively treat children with speech sound disorders. Readers will not only learn how to integrate research into practice, but also how to research their own practices to continually grow as professionals and advance the field. In addition, invaluable insights are provided on how to make efficient use of limited therapy time by targeting executive function, social communication, motor skills, language skills, and literacy skills while treating children with speech sound disorders.

Key Highlights

Readers actively engage in this robust learning experience by:

  • Participating in interactive activities with 120 video clips of diverse populations of preschoolers that clearly illustrate evidence-based practices.
  • Critically reviewing current research, objectively evaluating research in practice including their own, and creating evidence-based methods to continually improve evaluation and treatment of preschoolers with varied needs.
  • Implementing proven evidence-based strategies to improve outcomes within a variety of contexts for diverse groups of preschoolers.
  • Scaffolding children with complex treatment target selection to promote optimal growth at a time when neuroplasticity is at a high level.

This unique resource empowers individuals across academic and professional settings to improve the treatment outcomes for preschoolers with speech sound disorders, develop self-efficacy skills, and instill a lifelong love of learning in children.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
