Language Development: Understanding Language Diversity in the Classroom prepares nursery, primary and secondary teachers to appreciate and understand how language development can affect learning and learn strategies for working with students with language differences and disorders. Classroom examples and case studies have been integrated throughout the book to illustrate some of the most common speech and language behaviours found in classrooms. This book will help teachers gain a deeper understanding of cultural language differences and how they may affect second language learners.
