Speech Pathology Books
Speech pathology books have been a sore point for me in the past.
When I was a
speech pathology student I got to the point where I couldn't bear to read speech pathology textbooks.
Study fatigue or something like it.
Four years of searching bug-eyed through textbooks in the early hours can do that to a person. It got so bad that even months after I graduated I couldn't look at a book - neither text book nor fiction book.
Times have changed. Most of the texts we'll look at on this page are books I refer to every other day.
So if any out there are interested in learning more about the ideas and principles on this website, then do follow the links to the review pages.
