Product description

Product Description

In this book, aimed at both parents and professionals, the authors discuss the non-evidence-based interventions that proliferate in the fields of children’s speech, language, literacy, fluency, voice, communication, attention, cognition, working memory, behaviour and social connectedness. They explore the science – or lack thereof – behind the interventions and suggest evidence-based alternatives that enjoy stronger scientific support.
The authors approach their topic with a deep understanding of, and empathy for, the parents and professionals who are doubtful about conventional treatments, disappointed with the practitioners associated with them, and attracted to controversial interventions.
Written in lively, readable, plain English, Making Sense of Interventions for Children with Developmental Disorders – A Guide for Parents and Professionals provides:
• 
Clear descriptions of each intervention and the populations to whom they are marketed;
• 
Reasoned explanations of why the intervention should be approached with caution or rejected outright; and
• 
Suggestions for interventions with proper scientific support, suitable for the children in question.
