A Practical Approach to Saliva
Recognizing a real need for a survey of the literature and a sensitively presented, hands-on guide to the problems of saliva control and drooling, Australian speech/language pathologists Hilary Johnson and Amanda Scott bring together clinical observations and published findings from specialists around the world to create practical strategies for assessment and treatment. Clearly written and highly accessible, A Practical Approach to Saliva Control is an extremely valuable resource for therapists, special educators, and caregivers.
The problems of saliva control and drooling, while quite common among clients with a wide range of acquired and progressive disorders, have been little discussed in this country. Commonly the treatment of these conditions has involved a diverse array of professionals -- from psychologists to surgeons -- and a fragmented approach to the problem often results.
