Children's language difficulties affect many areas of functioning and development. Since most children with these difficulties are expected to function in ordinary schools and nurseries it is important that parents, teachers and practitioners have a broad understanding of the issues. Language and communication problems typically fall under the umbrella terms 'language disability, 'language delay', or 'language difficulties. They can range from an occasional difficulty with certain sounds to an inability to communicate using spoken language. These problems can occur in isolation or be associated with a range of special needs such as hearing loss, visual impairment or learning disabilities. This is the first introductory text to outline the difficulties experienced by children and link these to issues surrounding multidisciplinary assessment, intervention and service provision. Children's Language and Communication Difficulties offers professionals and parents an up-to-date account of: -the developmental language problems that children experience -the provision available to meet the child's needs the long term impact of language difficulties The authors examine the problems of identification and diagnosis, and explore the range of physical and cognitive disabilities associated with language problems. They have also looked closely at alternative forms of communication and have provided the reader with discussion and evaluation of recently developed intervention techniques.

This unique book emphasizes an intervention approach that is centered around school and family, rather than the clinical environment. It highlights the nature and needs of the language-disordered child; the critical role parents must play in these children's education; the function of the classroom as a language laboratory; multicultural issues in education and assessment; and development of a sound preschool program, both the philosophy behind it and the services offered. The content draws from the authors' extensive experience at the School for Language and Communication Development in North Bellmore, New York. FEATURES - Two full chapters deal with parent and family issues. - Emphasis on the practical application of intervention in the preschool setting focuses on issues of real importance to the classroom teacher. - A complete anatomy of a successful school program provides a detailed picture of how the intervention model is applied in a real-life setting, and gives students crucial instructional guidance on procedural methodology for their classroom. - Analysis of education laws and regulations that have an impact on the preschooler with a language disorder shows students how the law works and does not work for these: children. - A detailed analysis of classroom procedures is provided for the special education teacher who must facilitate learning of a) different types of handicapped children and, b) children with handicaps and without handicaps. The classroom is described as a language laboratory to integrate children. - A clinical-educational model is presented so that inclusion can be achieved by understanding the barriers that interfere with educational integration.

The domain of Communication Disorders has grown exponentially in the last two decades and has come to encompass much more than audiology, speech impediments and early language impairment. The realization that most developmental and learning disorders are language-based or language-related has brought insights from theoretical and empirical linguistics and its clinical applications to the forefront of Communication Disorders science. The current handbook takes an integrated psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and sociolinguistic perspective on Communication Disorders by targeting the interface between language and cognition as the context for understanding disrupted abilities and behaviors and providing solutions for treatment and therapy. Researchers and practitioners will be able to find in this handbook state-of-the-art information on typical and atypical development of language and communication (dis)abilities across the human lifespan from infancy to the aging brain, covering all major clinical disorders and conditions in various social and communicative contexts, such as spoken and written language and discourse, literacy issues, bilingualism, and socio-economic status.

Language ability is not only universal, but of vast potential, and related to numerous other cognitive and social functions. This book explores individual language process development and how it proceeds in a very predictable manner, parallel to specific areas of brain development. The authors' acquaint the reader with the current debate on the prevalence of oral and written linguistic difficulties as a precursor of Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD). The difficulties in verb/action processing found in patients with Parkinson's disease are discussed as well. The inferential abilities of children with Specific Language Impairments (SLI) are also reviewed. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its effects on communication are explored in Chapter 6. The authors' findings suggest that communication difficulty persist for years after injury, independent from other cognitive abilities. In later chapters, the authors examine atypical language development and psychopathological risk. The remaining chapters review nonverbal behavior and its importance in objectifying and verifying the diagnosis of mental disorders, if any; the communication challenges for the deaf (and applications that can help impaired people in some aspects of their life); and finally, the importance of segmental duration - a very important component of a text-to-speech (TTS) system in order to produce high quality synthetic speech which sounds natural.

This guide provides trainee teachers with an insight into the nature and teaching of primary science. It aims to introduce you to the ways in which children learn science, and to the science itself. Each Unit can be studied independently or used to support/prepare for school experiences. You will be directed towards additional reading, which will develop or confirm the subject knowledge you will need to achieve QTS. the curriculum guide is up-to-date, revised to take account of Curriculum 2000 and accepted 'good practice' in primary science teaching and learning. It is also flexible - many of the Units are stand-alone. They can be undertaken in any order, at your own pace, to complement school experiences. The Units are practical and feasible: the activities suggested can be undertaken by the non-specialist; in many cases without specialized equipment or access to large numbers of pupils. The guide is comprehensive, covering all the primary science elements in Curriculum 2000 and giving background information into other aspects of primary science teaching. It is also supportive - the guide suggests further texts to support trainees' own understanding of the scientific and pedagogical concepts involved. Additional reading draws on the TTA's list of approved key texts. The original text was piloted by students following a distance-learning PGCE course. It has been revised and updated in line with their comments and to meet Curriculum 2000 and Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage. The text was initially developed as a core text for the part-time distance-learning course at Liverpool Hope and is designed for trainee teachers on distance learning and flexible routes, returning, converting or overseas teachers.
