Communication Disorders in Infants and Toddlers is a concise guide to assessment and intervention for infants and toddlers in the birth-to-36-month age group with special needs. In the face of demands placed on the health care system by fluctuating public policy and managed care, this invaluable resource is designed to help professionals optimize treatment and achieve the best possible outcomes for very young patients. It emphasizes a multidisciplinary team approach to management, discussing the processes of teaming, referral, collaboration, and communicating efficiently and effectively with families and peers in related fields. Information on assessment methods, implications of specific diagnosis, and encouraging development through parent-professional teaming are presented with recent research findings, making this text both a valuable, evidence-based reference and clinical tool.

  • Appendices include extensive assessment tools and procedures, Internet resources, and administrative references.
  • Focuses on the practice encountered in health care settings or in private practices rather than school or preschool settings, which benefits clinicians and trainees who deal with these young patients before they enter school.
  • Expert authorship lends credibility and authority to the information presented.
  • Emphasizes the need for effective interaction and communication in a multidisciplinary team working with young, communication-impaired patients, providing crucial information and training on how to participate in a community environment dedicated to delivering outstanding care.
  • Includes information on important topics such as parental involvement, federal legislative initiatives, Managed Care issues, and multidisciplinary teamwork.
  • Well-referenced, up-to-date discussions incorporate the latest research in this area.
  • New material has been added throughout each chapter.
  • A new chapter on the hot topic of Autism Spectrum Disorder - a disorder that is being identified in infants and toddlers at an increasing rate - to help SLPs make a valid diagnosis and appropriate management decisions.
  • Internet resources for both professionals and families are provided in a new appendix
