    Language Disorders Across The Lifespan


Written for core introductory coursework on language disorders, LANGUAGE DISORDERS ACROSS THE LIFE SPAN, 3rd edition has been thoroughly updated to illustrate how the latest research can be applied to actual practice by speech-language pathologists when diagnosing and treating language delays and disorders in clients of all ages. The book maintains a clear progression from preschool to school-age children to adults in order to differentiate the origins and progression of language disorders. An expanded discussion of the long term potential impacts of delays and disorders in the preschool years leads in to a new chapter that explores how to "set the stage" for linguistic and literacy success. Expanded content also includes a new chapter on autism, coverage of right hemisphere deficits in TBI, an expanded discussion of syndromes, and a new discussion of the effects of nicotine on the developing fetus.
