9781597564915: Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders: Methods for Systematic Inquiry

This popular text, now in its second edition, arose from the author s inability to find a textbook that fully met her or her students' needs! Overly comprehensive texts generate blank faces, while excessively concise texts fail to fully meet the need for an effective depth of learning.
This text achieves a great balance between depth of coverage and readability, but balance is not the only reason this book is needed. Reflecting the movement toward evidence-based practice in audiology and speech-language pathology, the author has ensured that the concepts associated with evidence-based practice are integrated throughout the chapters (not just added as a separate chapter or course segment). Also included are features that help students be more active in learning the material. Each chapter has a set of review questions or case scenarios that can be used as homework, as probe questions in class, or as group activities. Importantly, the author has included lists of supplemental readings from the research literature in the field.
The second edition has been updated with new references and resources throughout. The chapter on research ethics was expanded to include broader coverage of responsible conduct of research and the impact of HIPAA. Additional information reflecting current practices in evidence-based practice has been added to the chapters on research questions, research design, statistics, and reporting research. The author has added two cases studies designed to promote discussion to the chapters on research ethics and quantitative research design. Tables illustrating example studies from communication sciences and disorders journals have been added to the chapters on non-experimental and experimental design, and the coverage of qualitative research designs has been expanded. Chapter 10 now includes a section on preparing a review of literature.
With its many added features and updated, enhanced content, Research in Communication Sciences and Disorders: Methods for Systematic Inquiry, is the ideal textbook for research-related courses.

After working for two years in an Iowa area education agency, she returned to school and completed her Ph.D. studies at Memphis State University (now University of Memphis).

Review:

The straightforward way the topics are presented is a strength of the book. ... The topics are integrated well to give a broad picture of the research landscape. ... By demonstrating the connection between these topics, the author makes qualitative research understandable, and helps students understand its strengths and limitations as compared to quantitative research. [Refers to First Edition] --James Mahshie, PhD, CCC-SLP, George Washington University, Doody's Review Service, (2009)

Named to Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences 2013 list --Doody's (2013)

This book seeks to address common concerns often raised by students undertaking the author's research course. It presents a succinct overview of the research process within the field of communication sciences and disorders. Beginning at the foundations, the author encourages the reader to reflect on the valuable role of research within clinical practice. She then guides the reader through the practical stages of carrying out a research project. Interestingly, she introduces qualitative approaches to design first, which I found particularly refreshing. The author presents highly readable chapters, laid out in an accessible format so the reader can easily 'dip in' to find information. She supports further study by review questions and learning activities, and the chapter on literature searching provides guided tutorials. As an introduction, the book provides a clear overview for students and clinicians new to research. --Claire Rowland, Highly Specialist SLT (research and audit lead), Stammering Support Centre, Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Bulletin, (Aug 2013)
