Treatment of Language Disorders in Children free pdf With this much-needed textbook, graduate students in SLP courses will have the comprehensive knowledge they need to evaluate, compare, select, and apply effective interventions for language disorders in children.

Each chapter critically examines one approach and brings it to life with one or more realistic case studies and a brief, memorable DVD clip. Readers will get rich, detailed portraits that include the theoretical and empirical basis of each intervention, target populations, assessment methods, practical requirements, and considerations for children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
