Burns, Frances A.; Velleman, Shelley L.; Green, Lisa J.; Roeper, Tom
Topics in Language Disorders, v30 n3 p253-264 Jul-Sep 2010
This article uses a question-and-answer format to respond to questions about working with children who speak African American English (AAE) in clinical and educational contexts. The respondents urge speech-language pathologists to appreciate AAE as students' first language, to view all language for its communicative potential, and to remain aware of implications of the latest research on AAE.
