"This theory-to-practice, transdisciplinary book series addresses the language difficulties associated with communication disorders and developmental disabilities. Grounded in state-of-the-art research, yet practical in orientation, the volumes in this series are invaluable resources for professionals and graduate students who work with learners with language delays or communication impairment." "Profound changes in legislation, technology, and philosophy have transformed language intervention for preschool and elementary-age children with language impairments. This comprehensive book examines the developments of the past decade, analyzes research, and evaluates the efficacy of recent innovations. Chapters provide practical intervention strategies for a variety of language problems and prepare interventionists to meet the demands of the classroom by addressing topics ranging from cultural awareness to the effectiveness of computers in intervention." "This resource also expands current norms, outlining innovative approaches, proposing challenging goals, and suggesting specific research. Speech-language pathologists and students in speech-language pathology, special educators and reading specialists, and researchers and clinicians in child development will turn to this volume for its appraisal of recent changes in language intervention and its recommendations for service delivery."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
