Summary

Co-written by one of the foremost authors in the field,Language Disorders in Children: An Evidence-Based Approach to Assessment and Treatmentprovides a clear and comprehensive view of evidenced-based assessment and treatment of language disorders in children. M.N. Hedge and Christine Maul have constructed a text useful for students, instructors, and practicing clinicians alike. Language Disorders in Children: An Evidence-Based Approach to Assessment and Treatmentprovides an all-encompassing look at the treatment of language disorders in various clinical populations, including children with autism, developmental disability, hearing loss, and neurogolical involvment. A review of research evidence in every chapter allows students and practicing clinicians to critically evaluate procedures before accepting or rejecting them. Jargon-free descriptions of theoretical concepts and treatment procedures ensures clinicians can readily implement the procedures in their practice. Display boxes, margin notes, chapter summaries, and study guides engage the learner through interesting stories and illuminating case studies.
