The book is organized into three sections. In the first, the subject of evidence–based practice is introduced. Its application to the profession of speech pathology is addressed and types and levels of evidence are described. The second part focuses on a number of sub–specialist areas of speech pathology practice (dysphagia; paediatric motor speech disorders; aphasiology; voice; paediatric language and AAC). In the third section of the book the authors demonstrate how to apply the principles of evidence–based practice to clinical practice, to research and to education.
