Let’s Communicate is everything you want in a human communication text—substantive, engaging, and fun. Created by communication scholars Douglas Fraleigh, Joseph Tuman, and Katherine Adams, Let’s Communicate takes their combined 100 years’ worth of research and teaching experience to present all the basic human communication concepts with unique attention paid to technology, culture, gender, and social justice. The authors provides provocative, real-life examples and a special focus on skills that together make communication meaningful for students both in and out of the classroom—all at an affordable price. Let’s Communicate is also the first human communication text to use hundreds of hand-drawn illustrations that help students understand and retain important concepts. These unique and often humorous illustrations present concepts in graphic form (especially helpful for visual learners), make complex ideas easier to understand, provide hooks to help students remember material, extend concepts, and generate discussion. Let’s Communicate matches cutting-edge content with powerful digital tools accessible through LaunchPad, a learning platform that that contains hundreds of videos, LearningCurve (our adaptive quizzing program), various assessment options, video assignment tools, instructor supplements, and a full e-book

'The book is clearly written and is consistent in style and presentation. Advocacy draws attention to the need for the individual's views to be expressed, communicated and understood by those around them and that advocacy is not what other people think the individual wants. Tufail and Lyons clearly and consistently reinforce this message throughout the book and illustrate this through the use of well-devised case studies to which most people can relate.' - The Frontline of Learning Disability 'The Four Books in this series; 'Introducing Advocacy', 'Rules and Standards', 'Listen Up!' and 'Advocacy in Action' are comprehensive, informative and quite simply a very good introduction for someone new to the world of advocacy.' - Practice Links in Social Work Advocacy for people with disabilities is widely practised, but what about self-advocacy? How often do parents or carers speak `for' you and prevent you being heard? Do you know your rights within advocacy law? The four books in the Speaking Up set were conceived and written specifically to promote self-advocacy to disabled individuals who want to learn how to speak up for themselves. This first book in the series introduces the concept of advocacy and explores appropriate advocacy models, for example peer group supportive models, and examines different forms of advocacy such as campaign advocacy, crisis or intervention advocacy, volunteer advocacy and health complaints advocacy. All four books are illustrated throughout with colour drawings and case studies showing the positive results of self-advocacy on the individuals themselves, as well as on their families and carers. This empowering training package encourages an equal partnership between the advocate and the user where the shared goal is to develop the life skills of the individual with learning difficulties. It is accessible to people with a wide range of literacy needs, including those with high learning needs and is designed for use in formal and informal learning situations, either unsupported or with a facilitator present.
