Summary

Written by leading experts in the field, Language and Reading Disabilities is the most up-to-date book on the nature and treatment of reading disabilities. Increased evidence has continued to mount in support of the language basis of reading disabilities and much has been learned in the past decade about how children learn to read. With a strong clinical and research basis, the book provides a broad perspective of language problems associated with reading disabilities. It includes a current review of research, the latest theories of reading development, phonological processes, and the relationship between dyslexia and language-learning disabilities. The book compares spoken and written language and notes similarities and differences. The acquisition of reading and reading-related language abilities are discussed. In the second half of the book, recognized experts in the areas of assessment and remediation of reading and writing disorders discuss the identification, assessment, and treatment of reading and writing disorders.
