Language Disorders in Children: A Multicultural and Case Perspective, 1/E Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin, California State University, Sacramento ISBN: 0205393403 Grounded in research with a focus on evidence-based practice, Language Disorders in Children addresses child language disorders from a culturally and linguistically diverse perspective. Unique to the field of speech-pathology, this first edition provides a valuable foundation for students with little-to-no background in language disorders. ldquo;The book presents current information with breadth and depth. I believe it will be extremely useful to the students of these introductory classes. The examples are good pedagogical devices.rdquo; -Vera Gutierrez-Clellen, San Diego State University ldquo;This book is an excellent reference for courses dealing with not only the identification of CLD students but also suggestions for therapeutic procedures. hellip; The pedagogical features and learning devices are excellent. There are enough case studies, charts, diagrams and expansion points that will be beneficial to the student learning as well as assisting the instructor in teaching the material. The case study examples are extremely useful and will be beneficial for use in the classroom.rdquo; -Janice M. Wright, Ohio University Features of This First Edition Include: - A multicultural emphasis throughout the text, which makes it unique among other books about child language disorders. - Multiple case studies of children who exemplify and realize specific issues. - ldquo;Points to Ponderrdquo; essay questions in each chapter which encourage students to think about the material and analyze what they have read. - ldquo;Connect and Extendrdquo; sections that recommend additional resources and opportunities for further research.
