For courses in Language Disorders.

Emphasizing the connection between language and literacy, this text explores language development and language disorders within the context of specific disabilities.

More than ever, it is essential that all students have language and communication skills so they can be successful in school and in the community. Organized in a three-part format, this text examines language development and disorders in school-age children, analyzes language difficulties associated with specific disabilities, and presents assessment techniques and instructional strategies used in today's classrooms. This edition includes new student vignettes, new teacher perspectives, updated activities, and new literacy sections so educators can learn how to apply concepts to real classroom situations.
