9780205287031: Language Disorders: A Functional Approach to Assessment and Intervention (3rd Edition)

Language Disorders is a comprehensive discussion of language disorders and clinical practice that takes students from model, through disorders, to assessment and intervention, with an emphasis on classroom application. It takes a functional, environmental, and conversational approach, by using the child's natural environment and conversational partners. Unlike other language disorders texts, which have a disorder-specific focus, this text takes a logical traverse from assessment through intervention. This new edition is completely updated with current trends and developments in the field, and is full of practical ideas and useful suggestions for students and speech-language pathologists. The text provides concrete guidelines and procedures for the assessment and training of children as well as the training for speech-language pathologists. Building upon the success of the second edition, this third edition provides more information on classroom applications, a new chapter on culturally diverse children, and new sections on reading.

From the Back Cover:

Most books that discuss children with speech impairments or cultural-linguistic differences begin with the premise that these kids are part of a disabled population. Such categorization obviously handicaps them in many ways at a very young age. Owens's book instead shifts this focus to the environment in which these children excel, the learning techniques which motivate them, and the early intervention which can prevent damage to their self-esteem and ability to learn language. This book takes a functional approach, using the childÕs natural environment and conversational partners.

This well-organized book takes the reader from model through disorder, then to assessment and intervention. Updated throughout with current trends and developments in the field, it is full of practical ideas and useful suggestions for readers. It provides concrete guidelines and procedures for the assessment and training of children as well as the training of speech-language pathologists.

Speech-pathologists, teachers, child development counselors, and parents.
