Chapters in this 400-page comprehensive practical reference tool were peer reviewed by more than 40 neuropsychologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, assistive technology specialists and teachers. Author Joan Green is a speech-language pathologist with more than 20 years of experience using technology to help adults who have had strokes and head injuries, and children with speech, language and learning challenges. The guide can be found online at www.ittsguides.com.

"Technology for Communication and Cognitive Treatment: The Clinician's Guide" highlights and discusses approaches, techniques and products that can help improve communication, learning, thinking and remembering.

Products discussed offer features such as voice recognition, text-to-speech, word prediction, study and organizational guidance, and drill and practice customized exercises.

"The Clinician's Guide" is designed to assist therapists, educators, and physicians as they help people with communication and cognitive challenges. The reader will learn to empower others to improve as well as compensate for the communication, learning and cognitive skills needed for success at school, at work, in the community and at home for improved overall quality of life.

"This guide outlines a revolutionary approach to enhance treatment outcomes," Green says. "It is written to help all of us who are busy efficiently locate the most pertinent information to help our clients and students."
