Description:

An essential, up-to-date guide for parents of children who may have trouble speaking or listening Over one million children every year receive speech-language therapy services through the public schools. If your child has a speech or language and listening problem, you may be at a loss about how to help.This knowledgeable and sensitively written book, now updated and revised for its Second Edition, answers the questions many parents ask themselves as they try to make sense of their developing child's problems with speech and language. It shows parents how to know when and if help is needed, where to find the right specialist, what their child's rights in the public schools are, and how the problem may affect a child academically, socially, and at home. The new edition features many changes in philosophy, treatment approach, labeling, educational laws, and programs. Patricia McAleer Hamaguchi, MA, CCC-SLP (San Francisco, CA), holds a master's degree in speech-language pathology and is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She has been a speech-language pathologist for more than twenty years.
