From the Back Cover:

With a focus on individual differences in language development, this second edition provides readers with a multidisciplinary survey of language development from birth to adulthood that balances research and theory with practice. Supplemented with both a Companion Website and a CD-ROM, this text emphasizes evidence-based practice, highlights multicultural considerations, and describes research methodology in language development.

 

The second edition of this text builds on the strengths of the first edition while making a number of enhancements. Now with a more conversational tone and a greater emphasis on student learning opportunities, the newest edition of Language Development from Theory to Practice has been reorganized to enhance student learning and contains a number of new and expanded topics, such as the Child Language Data Exchange System (CHILDES), language in aging adults, cochlear implants, sociocultural variation in children’s narratives, and infants’ use of gestures. In addition, this revised text contains two new boxed features--one that asks students to observe and analyze each other's speech and development and one that helps prepare students to take a Praxis exam.
