Q: I am considering whether or not to purchase your book, How to Stop Drooling. I wondered if it would be appropriate for my 5th grade student?
The book is appropriate for any person who drools to excess. Whether or not the ideas will help your specific student is unknown. The book contains practical ideas to consider for any type of client. Two other resources to consider:
- Rosenfeld-Johnson, S. (2005b) Drooling Remediation Program for Children and Adults. Tucson: Talk Tools.
- Johnson, H., & Scott, A. (1993) A Practical Approach to Saliva Control. San Antonio: Communication Skill Builders.
