This text assists the educational professional in the understanding, identification, and remediation of communication disorders in children and adolescents in inclusive settings.

While meeting the specific prescriptive remediation needs of individuals with communication disorders remains the primary responsibility of the speech-language professional, in light of legislation and emerging trends in educating children with disabilities, a shared responsibility resides with the classroom teacher and other members of the educational team. Appropriate vignettes and glossary are provided in an effort to bridge the jargon gap and for those who may not have experience with communication principles or pathologies. Relevant, practical strategies are offered and each chapter presents a logical sequence of functional information that clearly addresses the stated objectives. The content, as well as the bibliography, is current. Both attempt to blend classic literature with current findings from respected literature. Reflections, activities, and suggested reading lists are also provided.
