Language is of central importance in children's education and development, so providing help for the child suspected of having language difficulties is clearly of vital concern. Providing such help, or advising a teacher or parent on how best to proceed is, however, far from straightforward. Early Language Development draws together in a single volume the results of the very latest findings on language development and shows practitioners how best they can make use of them. In particular, special emphasis is given to the two most important practical questions for the practitioner: How can I find out exactly what the problem is? and What can I do about it?

Review:

." . . this is an unusually careful and reasonable discussion of the current developmental field and related language treatments, with real strengths in practical and methodological matters, combined with an attitude of general tolerance of ambiguity that is no common thing." -"Contemporary Psychology

Synopsis:

Different theories of language development are summarised and discussed in terms of their implications for language teaching. The author describes different ways of encouraging language development and explains how teachers and therapists can overcome the special problems faced by children with particular difficulties such as visual impairment, hearing impairment, general learning difficulties and environmental deprivation.
