Because dual language learners are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. student population┐and the majority speak Spanish as a first language┐the new generation of SLPs must have comprehensive knowledge of how to work effectively with bilingual speakers. That┐s what they┐ll get in the second edition of this book, an ideal graduate-level text and an essential resource for every practicing SLP. Fully updated with five new chapters on hot topics, an expanded age range that includes infants and toddlers, and cutting-edge research findings, this book arms SLPs with the most current information on language development and disorders of Spanish-English bilingual children. More than 25 leading researchers give SLPs in-depth, high-level coverage of a broad range of critical topics, including social-cultural factors affecting language acquisition, diagnosis of language disorders, effective professional development, infant/toddler language development, first language loss, bilingual lexical development, semantic development, verbal morphology and vocabulary, code-switching, and more. SLPs will have the sophisticated knowledge they need to accurately distinguish language disorders from typical bilingual development, and they┐ll get a complete language intervention framework they can use as a guide for their own practice.
