Assessment of Language Disorders in Children

«

"This book provides an introduction to the basic principles of psychological and educational assessment that underlie effective clinical decisions about childhood language disorders. It describes specific, commonly used tools as well as general approaches ranging from traditional standardized norm-referenced testing to more recent ones, such as dynamic and culturally valid assessment."
Eric Clearing House, Education Resources

"An excellent book...firmly grounded in theory and research....McCauley's writing style is clear, lucid, and appealing, with touches of personal experience, making even the most abstract and difficult concepts presented easy to follow. It is impressive that she has covered technical aspects of testing and measurement in an interesting manner, without sacrificing essential data....She addresses the crucial matter of ongoing assessment and measuring the effects of intervention in a thorough manner."
Frances P. Billeaud
University of Southwestern Louisiana

"This book is a thorough and timely review of all matters concerned with assessing children's language. Its detail and breadth of coverage is impressive: the reader is led from basic concepts in assessment through to selecting appropriate instruments and interpreting test findings, with summary chapters outlining theoretical and clinical issues in SLI, autism, mental retardation and hearing impairment along the way. Although an introductory text, it provides a detailed coverage of psychometrics, and it doesn't shy away from thorny issues such as language impairment in second language learners. In short, as well as providing a very comprehensive handbook for students of speech and language therapy, there is much in this book for practising therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers and others involved in working with children with language disorders."
