Summary

Language Disorders is a comprehensive discussion of language disorders and clinical practice that takes students from model, through disorders, to assessment and intervention, with an emphasis on classroom application.

This text takes a functional, environmental, and conversational approach by using the child's natural environment and conversational partners. Unlike other language disorders texts that have a disorder-specific focus, this text takes a logical traverse from assessment through intervention.

This new edition is completely updated with current trends and developments in the field and is full of practical ideas and useful suggestions for students and speech-language pathologists. The text provides concrete guidelines and procedures for the assessment and training of children as well as training for speech-language pathologists.

Features :

  • Strong theoretical background provides a rationale for content of text (Chs. 1 & 9).
  • Includes a wealth of practical information and specific techniques for different language problems in a convenient appendix.
  • Tables throughout the text provide ready reference on techniques and norms.
  • A focus on family-centered intervention throughout provides coherency to text.
  • More concise and comprehensive writing improves student readability.


New To This Edition :

  • More emphasis on early intervention and Alternative and Augmentative Communication.
  • New chapter on literacy impairments that addresses reading and writing and the role of speech-language pathologists with disorders of each (Ch. 13).
  • Expanded information on classroom intervention that includes current topics such as collaborative consultative intervention.
