Book Review: The SLP's Handbook for Inclusive School Practices
by Jenn Alcorn, CCC-SLP
Inclusion is one of those topics that either excites or frightens the involved parties. I have been exposed to inclusion since I was in grad school and I loved the idea of it! My involvement in inclusion services varies from year to year, depending on the students and teachers I am working with. I usually stick to providing language services in this way…I still think that I get the best results for articulation when I pull out.
I recently got the chance to review this book: The Speech-Language Pathologist’s Handbook for Inclusive School Practices by Juilie Causton and Chelsea P. Tracy-Bronson. It is such a great resource for SLPs, especially if inclusion makes you nervous, but also for other educators because it covers an SLPs role thoroughly.
It includes chapters to help you with collaboration, and providing social, academic, and behavior support in the classroom, which are very easy reading. I love that it includes examples, practical suggestions and ideas, and even some useful forms! I would definitely recommend it as a starting place for SLPs who are interested in providing inclusive services in their own school.
