Language Disorders Across the Lifespan, Second Edition is a core introductory text on language disorders written specifically for the novice reader. It is unique in that it covers language disorders across the lifespan, that is, from birth to old age. The book is organized into three sections: Language Delays and Disorders in Preschool Children, Language Disorders in School-Age Children, and Language Disorders in Adults. Common clinical considerations in the diagnosis and treatment of language delays and disorders are woven throughout each chapter. Case study reviews are also found throughout the text to illuminate real world implications of the disorders.
