Children with Language Disorders
This book examines what speech and language therapists, working individually and in multidisciplinary teams, really do with language-impaired children. Rather than discussing this from the basis of one particular school, theoretical model or approach, the book aims to develop a holistic view of the child, her/his family, environment and progress with language.
