  Special education and speech/language therapy students need to know how to apply their knowledge in practical settings to effectively prepare for and practice in their future careers as professionals. The use of case studies in this text will allow students to discuss and apply their knowledge in controlled settings to prepare them for real-life clinical applications. The problem-based instruction format is the best method for building students' knowledge while enhancing critical thinking skills in preliminary application situations.

This one-of-a-kind book provides an overview information related to language development and disorders followed by transcribed real-life case studies of both typical and atypical language development. By reading transcribed conversations of children at various ages, readers will be able to identify components of language development as well as intricate issues that may arise when a disorder is present.  Discussions, regarding diagnosis of problems and beneficial instructional approaches, become more meaningful when centered on real case study children. This text provides therapeutic interventions as well as inclusive practices for the general and special education settings. Every student should have this book!
