- Publisher's Summary
- Here's How Children Learn Speech and Language: A Text on Different Learning Strategies is an effective resource for speech-language pathologists working with children at the level of prekindergarten through high school. The author provides diagnostic tools to help clinicians assess underlying speech and/or language disorders that are impeding students' academic success. Once the underlying diagnoses are obtained, the author assists the clinician with identifying goals and developing strategies to meet those goals and improve academic performance. The strategies allow the SLP to incorporate the content of the child's school lessons, and they can be used across all curriculum areas. By basing the strategies on the student's individual speech and language abilities, the clinician will be best able to assist the student with following written and oral directions, reading fluency and comprehension, critical thinking, and retrieval. Here's How Children Learn Speech and Language: A Text on Different Learning Strategies is an essential resource for school-based SLPs and educators who work with children with speech and language disorders in the educational setting.
