Student Handbook

A Notebook!

*This Student Handbook was a project completed by a recent graduate student of mine, Sarah Unwer, M.S., CFY-SLP.  She did a fantastic job, and her work can help out others who would like to have a clinical notebook to guide them along their path.  Even for those of us that have been at it a little longer, this provides a nice framework for clinical practice.  Enjoy, and thanks Sarah!

The information for this handbook came from Sarah’s graduate school notes at the University of Central Arkansas.  A special thank you goes out to all those excellent professors at my and Sarah’s Alma Mater. (A special thanks to Dr. Logan, Dr. Moss-Logan, Dr. Kim McCullough, Dr. Gary McCullough, Dr. Lance, and any and all other faculty that helped with providing the notes that have been distilled into this clinical handbook).  Each section of the handbook will be a separate subset so it’s easier to digest and to print off, if you so desire.  Part 1 on Aphasia Assessment has been formatted for the computer… more to come soon!

    This is great as a resource for SLPs old & new. I’m fairly new myself and was looking for a quick refresher on RHD for a new client. That section of this notebook was well done, but there were several typos that made me question the content. When linked directly to the page from google, there is no mention that the work was completed by a student. I was able to tell, but some might take it at face value and that wouldn’t be right. I hope this is helpful criticism; no harm is meant and I do appreciate what this site is doing. Thanks!

      Thanks for the constructive criticism. If you will email me at with the specific typos, I’ll correct them. I must have missed them when transcribing the notes for the student handbook. If you notice anything else or have contributions for the site, let me know!

    Is it possible to have it emailed – I can’t access this on my work computer for some bizzare reason –

    I would love to read this, but it is making me sign up for a Flickr account with my mobile phone number, which I’d rather not do. Can it be posted on imgur?

      Please use the main menu and scroll down to the sections of the handbook that you are interested in reading. The link to Flickr is just attribution to the person who made the picture I used. No account needed if you don’t want to.

      Thanks for reading the site. 😊
