Computer Applications for Augmenting the Management of Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders
This is the first book in this field to examine computers and their impact on the study and practice of speech-language pathology and audiology. It introduces students to the multitude of ways that speech-language pathologists and audiologists have used computers to provide clinical services more efficiently and more cost-effectively. With this information, students will be better able to adequately promote the welfare of the persons they serve professionally in the managed health care, cost-containment environment in which they are likely to be required to practice in the near future.
