## Language Development and Disorders: A Case Study Approach

Prepare your students for clinical interactions with this one-of-a-kind guide! Special education and speech/language therapy students need to know how to apply their knowledge in practical settings to effectively prepare for and practice in their future careers as professionals. The use of case studies in this text will allow students to discuss and apply their knowledge in controlled settings to prepare them for real-life clinical applications. The problem-based instruction format is the best method for building students' knowledge while enhancing critical thinking skills in preliminary application situations. This book provides informational chapters containing overview information related to speech and language development and speech and language disorders followed by transcribed real-life case studies of both typical and atypical speech and language development. When possible, the companion audio or visual recordings provide additional information to the transcribed examples. By reading transcribed conversations of students at various ages, readers will be able to identify components of language development as well as intricate issues that may arise when a disorder is present. Every student should have this book!

LSA is a tool that can be used to determine language functioning of a child within
the natural educational environment by measuring the development and
accuracy of language used in a variety of communication contexts (Miller, Long,
McKinley, Thormann, Jones, & Nockerts, 2005). Language sample analysis, as a
method of assessment, is designed to gather a representative sample of the
child's spontaneous language so that an analysis can be made regarding the
child's language ...
