Pam Marshalla's highly-anticipated book, Carryover Techniques, contains hundreds of ideas for the carryover process. This book is packed full of research, clinical experiences, and practical ideas contributed from hundreds of professional SLP's practicing today.
Carryover is the term that commonly refers to a client's ability to take a speech skill learned in the therapy room and to apply it broadly in all speaking situations. Many speech-language clients acquire this skill almost immediately and without effort, but there are those who do not. A special focus on carryover is needed for them.
This book is research-based and practical. It contains therapy ideas to ponder and use during the process of carryover training. The text contains an integration of ideas from five sources: (1) Published research reports, (2) Modern textbooks on articulation and phonology, (3) Historical textbooks on articulation therapy, (4) The author's three decades of clinical experience, and (5) Games and activities contributed by hundreds of professional speech-language pathologists.
