This book serves as an introduction to topics related to typical and atypical language development that is considered most important to those with the potential to participate in the clinical service provision continuum. The broad topics would include (a) definition and description of language, (b) theories of language development, (c) precursors for language development, (d) language skills, which include prelinguistic, earlier and later linguistic, and metalinguistic, (e) collaborative professional relationships, (f) language delays, disorders, and differences, (g) aspects of the process of evaluation, and (h) aspects of the process of intervention. This book would equip participants in the service provision continuum to describe the components of language; interpret the implications of theories of language for interaction, evaluation, and intervention; describe the accomplishments in typical language development; compare and contrast typical with atypical language development; and describe the continuum of evaluation and intervention with appreciation of their contributions to this process.
