For introductory courses in Language Development.

Introducing Language Development From Theory to Practice, a fresh and welcome addition to the field of language development. This new market entry is a timely text that uses evidence-based practices to emphasize the research foundations of language development, builds reader comprehension with a developmental approach to language, promotes awareness of how culture interacts with language development and children of diverse backgrounds, and uses technology to enhance the learner’s experience. In addition to providing a multidisciplinary survey of language development from birth to adulthood, this text includes chapter inserts which focus on bridging theory with clinical and educational practice, highlights multicultural considerations, and describes research methodology in language development. Instructors will appreciate the instructors’ manual, which includes discussion items, chapter summaries, and a bank of assessment questions, and students will value the companion website, which includes reflection questions and study items for each chapter, as well as additional web links to sites of interest.
