The Functional Speech Therapy Workbook contains five sections and includes 340+ pages of functional activities that can be used to target real world cognitive-linguistic skills. Over the last decade, Person-centered care (PCC) has become the new standard across healthcare settings. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are “expected to provide PCC as part of their therapeutic interactions” (DiLollo & Favreau, 2010). Based on a person-centered care model, SLPs should select functional goals, plan functional treatment activities, and report functional gains (Elman & Bernstein-Ellis, 1995). But what does ‘functional’ therapy really mean? It is important that the patient and his or her family is involved in the treatment plan, especially when setting individualized short- and long- term goals. Ultimately, the goal of treatment should aim to maximize independence and improve quality of life. Unlike a typical workbook, this resource is packed with practical and relevant treatment materials that support this model and promote generalization into activities of daily living.
