Prepare for Clinical Interactions with this Essential Textbook on Language Development!

To effectively prepare for careers in special education and speech therapy, students need to know how to apply their knowledge in practical settings. Language Development and Disorders: A Case Study Approach uses case studies in a problem-based instruction format so students can discuss and apply their knowledge in controlled settings to prepare them for real-life clinical applications.

In addition to providing an overview of speech and language development and disorders, this text offers transcribed real-life case studies of both typical and atypical speech and language development. By reading transcribed conversations of children at various ages, readers will be able to identify components of language development as well as intricate issues that may arise when a disorder is present. Discussions regarding diagnoses of problems and beneficial instructional approaches become more meaningful when centered on real children. The case-based approach and transcript feature of this text will build students’ knowledge while enhancing critical thinking skills in preliminary application situations.
