The essential, up-to-date guide for helping children with language and listening problems.
Does your child have trouble getting the right words out, following directions, or being understood? In this revised new edition of Childhood Speech, Language, and Listening Problems, speech-language pathologist Patricia Hamaguchi - who has been helping children overcome problems like these for more than 30 years - answers your questions to help you determine what's best for your child.
This newest edition:

Expands on speech and articulation issues affecting toddlers.

Explains how to get the right help for your child, including when to wait before seeking help, how to find the right specialist, and how the problem may affect your child academically, socially, and at home.
Covers major revisions in educational laws and programs and insurance coverage as well as current information on new interventions and cutting-edge research in the field.
Updates information on autism spectrum disorders, neurobiological disorders, and auditory processing disorders.
More than 1.1 million children receive special education services each year to address speech and language problems, and many others struggle with language and listening to some degree. If your child is one of them, this book gives you the crucial and up-to-date guidance you need to help him or her both in school and at home.
