Course Description:
In this podcast, we speak with Dr. Amy Freeman-Sanderson and Laura Brooks, M.Ed., CCC-SLP, BCS-S to discuss how SLPs may implement research in their clinical practice. An emphasis is placed on considerations for research design and publishing. We describe how to implement research and make data collection a standard of daily practice.
