9780205607648: Language Disorders: A Functional Approach to Assessment and Intervention (5th Edition)

The new fifth edition of Language Disorders offers a comprehensive discussion of language disorders and clinical practice that emphasizes classroom application and evidence-based practice. The text builds a foundation of information about models and disorders and then asks students to apply that information to learning assessment and intervention skills. This text takes a functional, environmental, and conversational approach to assessment and intervention by using the child's natural environment and conversational partners. Unlike other language disorders texts that have a disorder-specific focus, this text takes a logical traverse from assessment through intervention across disorders.

 

The revised fifth edition is completely updated with current trends and developments in the field and offers an array 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 training for speech-language pathologists.

From the Back Cover:

The new fifth edition of Language Disorders offers a comprehensive discussion of language disorders in terms of clinical practice, emphasizing classroom application and evidence-based practice. The text first presents a foundation of important models and disorders and then asks students to apply new skills to learning assessment and intervention. Language Disorders takes a functional, environmental, and conversational approach, teaching students to use a child's natural environment and conversational partners to their advantage. Unlike other language disorders texts that have a disorder-specific focus, this book takes a more logical traverse from assessment through intervention across disorders, focusing on family- and classroom-centered interventions.

 

While continuing to build a theoretical background for students and teaching specific techniques for specific language issues, the revised fifth edition is also completely updated with current trends and developments in the field and offers an array of practical ideas and useful suggestions for students and speech-language pathologists. The book provides future speech-language pathologists with concrete guidelines and procedures for the assessment and training of children.

 

New Features:
  • An expanded chapter on literacy impairments addresses reading and writing as well as the role of the speech-language pathologist in tackling these disorders.
  • A new emphasis on evidence-based practice helps students understand how and why the tactics and methods in assessment and intervention were developed.
  • An even larger variety of language impairments are discussed, including the newest findings and latest research in the field.
  • Concise and comprehensive writing improves text readability and helps students clearly understand every theme, concept and chapter.
