"Identifying children with language impairments has grown increasingly complex as a result of rapid and revolutionary progress in the field of communicative disorders. In Assessment of Communication and Language, leading experts in the field analyze the implications of advances in research and theory and suggest improvements to widely used methods and practices. Some of the important issues they discuss are who should be tested for speech/language disorders; how to adapt methods for children from multicultural backgrounds; what to do when English is a child's second language; the pros and cons of norm-referenced tests and criterion-referenced tests; new ways to use parent report; better methods for evaluating narrative discourse skills; what kinds of tests to use to develop an intervention plan; the best methods for verifying program progress; and new discoveries about language acquisition." "This comprehensive guide to communication and language assessment provides speech-language pathologists, psychologists, researchers, interventionists, special educators, and students with invaluable information and helpful strategies for integrating theoretical and practical advances into their daily work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This new standout volume is the first to describe developmental areas associated with social competence and social communication, as well as provide evidence-based information on effective assessment and intervention for children who have problems with social communication and social interactions. Expertly crafted, the volume offers both theory and practice within one comprehensive, yet manageable resource for busy professionals. The first section covers social communication theory and associated developmental domains. Case studies are provided to exemplify how different variables may affect social communication development. The second section covers evidence-based practices for social communication disorders and includes case studies, incidence and prevalence estimates, the current DSM-V definition of the disorder, referral guidelines, recommended practices of assessment and intervention, and a list of clinical resources. Social Communication Development and Disorders is an ideal text for a range of courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders or Speech-Language Pathology, and a must-have reference for professionals working with children with social competence or social communication problems, including speech-language pathologists (SLPs), regular and special educators, psychologists, and support personnel such as social workers, counselors, and occupational therapists.

Language is of central importance in children's education and development, so providing help for the child suspected of having language difficulties is clearly of vital concern. Providing such help, or advising a teacher or parent on how best to proceed is, however, far from straightforward. Early Language Development draws together in a single volume the results of the very latest findings on language development and shows practitioners how best they can make use of them. In particular, special emphasis is given to the two most important practical questions for the practitioner: How can I find out exactly what the problem is? and What can I do about it?

Long before they make any sounds approaching language, infants share in communication, though what this means is the subject of much scrutiny. This volume is, as Dr Bullowa says in her introduction, primarily a book about 'how scientists go about finding out how infants and adults communicate with one another'.

This work describes and includes a practical assessment of functional communication in four parts: it considers communication skills from the earliest interactions to the skills of children working within level one of the National Curriculum English; it also aims to enable the reader to build an assessment of how and what a child is communicating, and to assess a range of communication difficulties; a completed assessment supplies information to construct an individual, total communication system for each child, which can include sign, symbol and speech output devices; and the book should enable differing professionals to assess together using shared framework and to then plan realistic support for an individual child.

For the vast majority of children acquiring speech and language skills is an effortless process. However there is a sizeable proportion of children for whom this is not true. Difficulties they experience may be associated with other conditions such as cleft palate or hearing loss or they may have no obvious cause. This book provides a comprehensive picture of the difficulties that occur when speech and language does not develop in the young child. Divided into two sections the first focuses on how such children should be identified and assessed. The second section provides specific insights into communication difficulties in different conditions. Each is written by an expert practitioner and is illustrated with specific examples. Based on best clinical practice and research-based evidence it is a practical guide fully referenced for those who wish to develop knowledge further. It is essential reading for all professionals who work with children particularly those who work in community settings.
