Language Disorders of Children: The Bases and Diagnoses.
Berry, Mildred Freburg
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the text is intended as an introduction to language disorders in children. Aspects of tracking language in the nervous system considered include neural substrates of language development, operational systems, and operational mechanisms. Language and learning are discussed in terms of the psychological parameters of language learning and the development of language in the child; the evaluation of the linguistically handicapped child is described with reference to the longitudinal study of verbal and nonverbal behaviors, diagnostic testing of oral language, and testing abilities associated with language learning. Profiles are provided of five children with disorders of verbal communication. Information regarding diagnosis is appended. (GD)
