This text focuses on communication development from infancy through to adolescence by presenting detailed theoretical and research information on the language acquisition process. It also provides the student with an initial exposure to the clinical applicability of the literature in the field. Each chapter shows the clinical relevance of the particular aspect of communication development described, using case studies. The book presents communication development as an aspect of child development and the content is logically sequenced: the information extends from foundations (neurolinguistics, theories of communication development, motor and social development, caretaker-child interaction, cognitive development from prelinguistic stage) through advanced stages.
