Debra Dwight, Ed.D., CCC-SLP, is Assistant Professor and Director of Speech-Language Pathology Programs at the University of West Georgia, Carrollton.Review:
"The "How to Do Therapy" text is an excellent tool - I wish it would have been available when I was a beginning clinician - and it is even good reading for a seasoned clinician!" Allison Spitznagel, University of West Georgia: "Dr. Dwight has spent the last few years of her life devoted to this book entitled Here's How to Do Therapy. Her book has helped the undergraduate student better grasp the concept of beginning therapy in the general setting. The book is exquisitely plotted out in steps to take before one begins actual therapy. Here's How to Do is a wonderful resource for beginning Speech-Language Pathology students. This book helps guide students by giving explicit examples of what to say and how to react to certain surprises in the therapy session. Dr. Dwight also gives excellent guide with the vignettes." Sarah M. Payne, University of West Georgia: "Dr. Debra Dwight's book, Here's How to Do Therapy: Hands-On Core Skills in Speech-Language Pathology, is a very useful resource for the student Speech-Language Pathologist. It focuses on different therapy techniques and provides workshops so that the student can try his/her hand at different techniques. As a student, I have never used a textbook that provides so much detail and so many opportunities for application in and outside the classroom. I found the book to be practical and easy to read, and I know that I will frequently refer to it once I begin working as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I would recommend this book to any student who is interested in the field of Speech-Language Pathology." --Mandie Harris, Oklahoma State University
"As a Speech Language Therapy major, Here's How to Do Therapy gave me the "how" of therapy. Through an easy read, all aspects of speech therapy are covered - from interpersonal communication skills, to actual therapy sessions complete with data collection and time management methods. In addition, I found the written and DVD examples to be far superior to the typical clinical teaching method of observing live therapy sessions. Here's How to Do Therapy is a great resource to have for the beginning and experienced therapist. It is a book that will remain on my therapist bookshelf for many years to come." --Dana D. Pell, University of West Georgia
"When I took [the course title] Methods of Clinical Management from Dr. Dwight, she was in the process of writing her book, Here's How to Do Therapy. She was teaching from handouts she created and then finally putting those handouts into this book. Everything Dr. Dwight taught us in this class came from her own experiences and I truly feel there is no better way to learn. When Here's How to Do Therapy was published I immediately went out and purchased it. I felt this book would be a tremendous asset to my therapy library. It is a guide that is easy to follow and every speech-language pathology student and professional should own. From basic materials lists for the speech-language therapy kit to step-by-step scripted therapy sessions, this book has everything you need to conduct therapy for all levels and types of speech-language disorders." --Lisa J. Eady
