Language Handbook: Concepts, Assessment, Intervention.
Muma, John R.
Written primarily for clinicians who have interests in language assessment and intervention techniques, this book is intended for the following clinical specialties: speech pathology, deaf education, mental retardation, reading disabilities, language arts, special education, learning disabilities, and school psychology. The book provides an integration and translation of theoretical issues in a conceptual framework for clinical assessment-intervention, and presents an overview of the literature on cognitive-linguistic-communicative systems. Specific topics covered in the 11 chapters include a model of appropriate language intervention; the nature of language; cognitive, linguistic, and communicative systems; language acquisition; assessment and intervention principles; and specific assessment-intervention procedures for cognitive, linguistic, and communicative systems. Appendixes list relevant publications and discuss semantic-syntactic domains, phonetic features, phonotactic processes, and developmental sequences and strategies. (FL)
