Progressing toward Life Goals: A Person-Centered Approach To Evaluating Therapy.
Duchan, Judith; Black, Maria
Topics in Language Disorders, v22 n1 p37-49 Nov 2001
This article on speech-language therapy argues that new emphases on the client's life participation, involvement in clinical decision making, and cultural sensitivity should be seen as additions rather than alternatives to therapeutic impairment-oriented approaches. It proposes that the client's progression toward life goals be the standard used to evaluate the whole course of therapy. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
