I am an SLP interested in feeding/swallowing disorders/problems. Unfortunately, formal schooling did not give me enough practice or confidence to pursue this area more. I decided to find resources to better educate myself and came across this book. For only $25, I was beyond amazed at what I got! no $100+ textbook provided with the wealth of PRACTICAL and USEFUL information as this book does. It seems like this book was intended more for parents, but I would say the book is a bit difficult for a non-professional to really follow. However, its perfect for SLP's and SLP-grad. students to learn from and use a reference. The book looks intimidating at first because its fairly thick and resembles a textbook and I was at first put off by it, thinking "how am I going to get through it?" Once I picked it up and started reading I was amazed at how simple the language was and how easy of the read was and how relevant and useful all the presented information was! The book just flows and you want to learn more and more as you read and what I like is that the author reiterates some important points throughout the book so you don't forget too easily. I usually dont do well with text and I am a visual learner, but the way the information is presented here, I have been soaking in the information. Each sub-category in each chapter comes with very useful checklists/charts that are so easy to understand and follow when going to assess a child with a feeding disorder/problem. The checklists are outlined as what the normal behavior is, the equivalent abnormal behavior, and the possible causes/fixes to the behavior ...(and thats pretty much the outline of the whole book) what more can you ask for as a clinician! You pull this book out and here is the info! You can make copies of the checklists and carry them around for your evaluations and treatments. the language in this book is also simple enough for parents to underastand (if you want to make copies and provide information) but in conjunction with counseling from the SLP. I think this would be too overwhelming for parents to understand on their own. this is Its a MUST-HAVE reference book!
