Summary

Because dual language learners are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. student population¿and the majority speak Spanish as a first language¿the new generation of SLPs must have comprehensive knowledge of how to work effectively with bilingual speakers. That¿s what they¿ll get in the second edition of this book, an ideal graduate-level text and an essential resource for every practicing SLP. Fully updated with five new chapters on hot topics, an expanded age range that includes infants and toddlers, and cutting-edge research findings, this book arms SLPs with the most current information on language development and disorders of Spanish-English bilingual children. More than 25 leading researchers give SLPs in-depth, high-level coverage of a broad range of critical topics, including social-cultural factors affecting language acquisition, diagnosis of language disorders, effective professional development, infant/toddler language development, first language loss, bilingual lexical development, semantic development, verbal morphology and vocabulary, code-switching, and more. SLPs will have the sophisticated knowledge they need to accurately distinguish language disorders from typical bilingual development, and they¿ll get a complete language intervention framework they can use as a guide for their own practice.
