For those requiring to extend their knowledge in more specialised areas, a number of chapters deal with subjects such as the use of 'Augmentative and Alternative Communication', and working with 'Parents and Members of Related Professions'.;The last two chapters address topics which have more recently attracted attention, these being the management of the communication needs of service users with 'Challenging Behaviour' and those with 'Dual Diagnosis' (learning disability and mental illness combined).
