Chapters written by leading authorities offer current perspectives on the origins and development of language disorders. They address the question: How can the child's linguistic environment be restructured so that children at risk can develop important adaptive skills in the domains of self-care, social interaction, and problem solving? This theory-based, but practical book emphasizes the importance of accurate definitions of subtypes for assessment and intervention. It will be of interest to students, researchers, and practitioners in the field of developmental language disorders.

"This book contains a wealth of information about various aspects of language disorders and as such will appeal to, and is recommended for, persons involved in speech-language pathology, linguistics, and psycholinguistics who are interested in, study, and enjoy thinking and learning about language." — Childhood Language Teaching and Therapy

"This book presents with contributions of the highest relevance to both the clinician and the researcher….the book is also highly valuable as a reference book as it provides up-to-date bibliographical references on the whole spectrum of developmental language disorders….it explicitly lays out the very complex relationship between psycholinguistic theory and clinical practice, fields which conceive of DLD children from different, often competing, perspectives." — Child Language
