A number of books and studies have shed light on the value of professionals working together to address the language and literacy needs of ELLs with communication differences and/or disorders. However, few resources have directly and intentionally addressed the merging of the two disciplines - speech-language pathology and English as a second language, in effecting change in language and literacy. Thus, there is a gap in the literature. This book influences how the disciplines of speech-language pathology and English as a second language view and incorporate the roles of professionals in working with ELLs.
