This revised and updated second edition of Working with Children’s Language has been created to support practitioners who work with young children with delayed language acquisition. Rooted in a developmental theory of language learning, it covers topics such as attention control and listening, the role of play, verbal comprehension and the acquisition of spoken expressive language. Each chapter offers a straightforward overview of current research relating to the specific language skill before introducing a wealth of targeted games and activities that can help support the development of those skills. Key features include: • A structured approach to language learning that can be followed as a programme or adapted for informal use by individual practitioners. • Accessible activities, games and ideas suitable for small group or individual intervention, linked to specific aims based on developmental norms. • Photocopiable and downloadable resources, including a record sheet to track progress in each skill against aims and outcomes for individual children. Clearly linking theory and practice in an engaging and easy-to-follow format, this is an invaluable resource to support children in early years settings and Key Stage 1 whose language is delayed, but who are otherwise developing normally. It is a must-have book for early years practitioners, teachers, SEND professionals and speech and language therapists with varying levels of experience.

The third edition of Language Sampling With Children and Adolescents: Implications for Intervention provides guidelines for analyzing spoken and written language production in both children and adolescents. The text, which is geared for graduate students and practicing speech-language pathologists, has been expanded to include preschool children (ages 3–4 years) and school-age children (ages 5–11 years), in addition to adolescents (ages 12–18 years). Included within the book are numerous figures, tables, and practical exercises (with answer keys) to help readers understand how to analyze the content and structure of the different discourse genres—conversational, narrative, expository, and persuasive—and how to utilize this information in establishing functional language goals and implementing intervention activities for children and adolescents with language disorders. The ability to express oneself with accuracy, clarity, and efficiency is essential for success in social, academic, and vocational settings. Language Sampling With Children and Adolescents: Implications for Intervention, Third Edition, is a must-have resource for those working with preschool children, school-age children, and adolescents. Includes grammar review and exercises! New to the Third Edition: * Now also covers preschool and school-age children * Each genre (conversation, narration, exposition, persuasion) now has its own chapter * Grammar review and exercises (with answer keys) have been expanded * Includes greater number of language samples to analyze (with answer keys) * Includes more normative data for spoken and written language production * Offers greater direction for intervention * Includes more case studies * All chapters have been updated to reflect recent research

Although most children learn language relatively quickly, as many as 10 per cent of them are slow to start speaking and are said to have developmental language disorder (DLD). Children with DLD are managed by a variety of different professionals in different countries, are offered different services for different periods of time and are given a variety of different therapeutic treatments. To date, there has been no attempt to evaluate these different practices. Managing Children with Developmental Language Disorder: Theory and Practice Across Europe and Beyond does just this, reporting on the findings of a survey carried out as part of the work of COST Action IS1406, a European research network. Law and colleagues analyse the results of a pan-European survey, looking at how different services are delivered in different counties, at the cultural factors underpinning such services and the theoretical frameworks used to inform practice in different countries. The book also provides a snapshot of international practices in a set of 35 country-specific "vignettes", providing a benchmark for future developments but also calling attention to the work of key practitioners and thinkers in each of the countries investigated. This book will be essential reading for practitioners working with children with language impairments, those commissioning services and policy in the field and students of speech and language therapy.
Clinicians with a wide range of experience in intervening on behalf of children with language impairment completed the COST Action survey referred to above and, of these, 80 per cent work in an SLT position; 6 per cent work in a special ...

Through the use of multiple vignettes and case studies, the occupational therapy assistants learn how to implement interventions for children and adolescents who are experiencing specific health and learning challenges. Reflection and application questions at the end of each chapter reinforce text content.Occupational therapy assistant

First published in 1988. Language is an important developmental ability which facilitates communication both at home and at school. It is also the foundation of many of a child’s learning experiences in school. A certain level of language is often a pre-requisite both for success in particular curriculum areas and for the ability to conceptualise generally. Language developing is thus a major concern for those who work with mentally handicapped children and it has come to be regarded as one of the main objectives within the special school curriculum. This book is concerned with the opportunities for language learning which special schools make available for severely mentally handicapped children. It describes how special schools seek to meet the very diverse needs of their pupils and provides a discussion of the success of contemporary approaches to encouraging language development. The author makes a number of constructive criticisms and suggestions for improving practice which should interest anyone whose work involves teaching children with severe learning difficulties.
Interestingly, very different descriptions of children's language were given in response to another question which ... thing you can do to encourage the development of language and communication skills in the children you work with?

Despite an increasing awareness of Developmental Language Disorder, there are very few tools available to help people understand and live with a diagnosis of DLD. DLD and Me is a functional, engaging resource for children and young people with DLD and the professionals and families that work with them. The book consists of an easy-to-follow, 12-week programme designed to help children and young people understand their strengths, what makes them different, what DLD is and how they can support their own communication in everyday life. Key features include: clearly worded session plans for therapists or education staff to follow; engaging visual resources to accompany the session plans, each available to photocopy and download; home sheets to keep families involved and informed; information sheets and training plans for parents and education staff; outcome measures to evaluate progress.
