Product description

From the Back Cover

Designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, Childhood Language and Literacy Disorders: Infancy Through Adolescence allows readers to gain essential knowledge that can inform, and transform, their work with children who have special learning needs.


Featuring content and questions that encourage deeper thinking about the nature of disordered and normal development, this text makes assessment and intervention practices relevant to the contexts of home, classroom, and peer interactions. Readers will learn to draw on multiple sources of input to develop an assessment picture for a child at any age and stage of development, plan interventions that target developmentally appropriate outcomes in spoken and written language, and apply techniques that are informed by varied theoretical perspectives and a growing evidence base.


This text is organized into three sections that thoroughly cover basic concepts and policies, appropriate assessment and intervention procedures across developmental ages and stages, and common language and literacy disorders amongst children. Written primarily for students in speech-language pathology, this text applies to practitioners, special education teachers, and interdisciplinary instructors. Extended exercises and review materials ensure that students will be fully prepared to work with diverse groups of children in a variety of real-life settings.


Childhood Language and Literacy Disorders: Infancy Through Adolescence…

·    Consistently presents the themes of evidence-based practice, analysis of theoretical perspectives and their biases, and an emphasis on learning about categories and classifications through a framework of multiple physiological systems.

·    Concretely shows students how to pull information, practices, and disciplines together in addressing spoken and written language disorders across childhood.

·    Uses review materials to encourage students to reach higher levels of thinking regarding difficult and controversial concepts, including the ability to appraise sources critically when conducting evidence-based practice reviews independently. 

  • Includes illustrated clinical examples of treatment of language and literacy disorders by professionals in multiple disciplines. 
  • Utilizes a developmental systems approach that addresses both IDEA and NCLB legislation by associating concrete assessment and intervention activities with specific goal areas and targets at each age and stage of development.
  • Includes advance organizers, review and practice material, chapter summaries, and suggestions for extended learning opportunities in each chapter.
