E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
“If you didn’t document it, you didn’t do it.” Competent professional writing is a necessity, not a luxury. Third-party payers, such as insurance companies, may deny payment if the documentation for professional services is incorrect or incomplete. Medical chart notes, diagnostic evaluations, progress reports, and discharge summaries are all legal documents that may be used in court. The Code of Ethics of the American Speech-Language- Hearing Association (ASHA , 2016) states that individuals shall provide all services competently, and that includes documentation of services rendered. The authors were motivated to write the present book to address writing problems exhibited by undergraduate and graduate students in communication sciences and disorders (CSD), lax documentation by clinicians, and general slovenliness in professional discourse. Since the second edition was published in 2014, we have figuratively blown our tops at students’ overuse of literally in conversation, although this trend has not (yet) infected their professional writing.

We continue to remind students that they are off base if they write based off of instead of based on. Lastly, we understand the reasons for accepting a singular form of they in spoken discourse, but reject its use in professional writing. The Third Edition includes expanded exercises in all sections, in response to reviewers who used the second edition and requested more practice opportunities. We include a more accessible website instead of a bundled CD for additional materials. We also responded to feedback from students who enrolled in a Professional Writing Boot Camp at Adelphi University that led to some changes and adjustments in the present volume. Guidelines for instituting writing boot camps at other colleges and universities appear in the website. In addition, RG field-tested portions of the second edition as a Fulbright Senior Specialist in Linguistics in Bogota, Colombia. The graduate TEFL students attended research methods and academic writing lectures in English, and provided valuable feedback regarding both English and Spanish materials provided in the courses.
