Product description


Professors using this book are saying:
"Very comprehensive. Clearly presented."
"It is comprehensive - covers nearly every study that has ever been published on phonological disorders!"
"The content is EXCELLENT." --Professors

"Developmental Phonological Disorders: Foundations of Clinical Practice is intended for an ambitiously wide audience, including undergraduate students, new clinicians, and experienced speech and language therapists (SLTs) seeking professional development... [Authors] Susan Rvachew and Francoise Brosseau-Lapre, who are lecturers and researchers at McGill University (Canada), have created a text that has something for everyone.

The authors have successfully integrated a wealth of cross-discipline knowledge (think genetics, linguistics, neurolinguistics and neurosciences) to weave a state-of-the-art account of normal and impaired phonological development...The greatest achievement of Developmental Phonological Disorders is the sheer wealth of theoretical knowledge and clinical know how offered in one volume...[It] is certainly worth the considerable space it will take up on any paediatric SLT's bookcase." --Rebecca Waring, University of Melbourne, International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2013

"...The book is intended for undergraduate, graduate speech and language therapists (SLTs) and professional development...The book does go into delay and motor difficulties, and touches on dyspraxia, but also refers to thorough assessment and individual analysis of the child s speech sounds, before hypothesizing on the child s sound system and therefore the intervention strategies to pursue. It also acknowledges the reality of overlap of difficulties and provides useful information for differential diagnosis...[T]his is an extremely well researched book. In fact the chapters on development in this book are extremely informative and will give invaluable insight to anyone working with chwPhonD. Also the authors do not take a narrow view, but they present a very broad view posing multiple models (e.g. a biopsychosocial model), with an overall holistic approach.

The authors viewpoints undoubtedly make a significant contribution and advancement to the topic of phonological difficulty...One of the things most welcome about this book is the evidence base it provides. For a professional that has difficulty supplying evidence for its practice, this is a treasure trove. Wherever possible, the authors quote research support. However this is not a book driven by purely academic interest. The subtitle of the book is Foundations of Clinical Practice , and this description is justified. Both authors are experiences SLTs/SLPs, and one feels that the research is not the primary interest, but a means to an end. The authors integrate evidence with clinical practice, and their experience enables them to inform practice. This book makes a huge contribution to the understanding of and the intervention for children with phonological difficulties." --Mary Auckland, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, Symbol UK Ltd, Child Language and Teaching Therapy, 0(0) 1-5, (2012)
