Summary: Firmly rooted in research, The Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is an update of Jean L. Anderson's seminal work by the same name and proves to be a practical guide for supervision at all stages of development.
While preserving the essential and unique text from Anderson's work, this text is a practical and immediately applicable resource for supervisors and supervisees. The now classic Continuum Model and its stages of supervi ...show moresion developed by Anderson form the foundation of this text. Each stage is fully explicated in its own chapter and is accompanied by strategies and tools to implement it. Research findings and information generated since the publication of the Anderson text are integrated into existing chapters. The effect is a cohesive discussion of Anderson's model that will support the professional practice of supervisors in speech-language pathology and audiology as well as professionals in allied health and education.
The contemporary format of this new text includes a new chapter on the supervision of speech-language pathology assistants, attention to new ASHA training standards (effective in 2005), and case studies and practical tools that make it useful for supervisors in any setting and level of practice. The final chapters of the text demonstrate the model's use in the preparation and continuing professional education of supervisors.
