Language Disorders Across the Lifespan, Second Edition is a core introductory text on language disorders written specifically for the novice reader. It is unique in that it covers language disorders across the lifespan, that is, from birth to old age. The book is organized into three sections: Language Delays and Disorders in Preschool Children, Language Disorders in School-Age Children, and Language Disorders in Adults. Common clinical considerations in the diagnosis and treatment of language delays and disorders are woven throughout each chapter. Case study reviews are also found throughout the text to illuminate real world implications of the disorders.

Betsy Partin Vinson is a clinical associate professor at the University of Florida where she teaches the undergraduate Introduction to Language Disorders course, the graduate level Diagnostics course, and a variety of graduate electives including pediatric dysphagia and counseling. She earned her Master of Medical Science degree in 1976 from Emory University. Before joining the faculty at UF in 1985, she worked in a state facility for handicapped individuals, and at a public school for the mentally and/or physically challenged.
