Description:

This engaging new book provides comprehensive coverage of research methods as well as a foundation in statistical analysis vital for individuals in the communication sciences and disorders field. While most speech-language pathologists and audiologists pursue clinical practice rather than research careers, it is important to understand the scientific base that their clinical work is built upon. Successful evidence-based clinical practice is rooted in this understanding. Research and Statistical Methods in Communication Sciences and Disorders covers the principles of research design, data analysis, and presentation of findings necessary for individuals performing research as well as consumers of scientific literature. Filled with meaningful examples, written in readable language, and pertinent to both speech-language pathology and audiology, this resource provides the essential knowledge of scientific reasoning and methods for scientific inquiry necessary to perform and understand research.
