Caroline Bowen



481 pages



Bowen, a speech-language pathologist in Australia, outlines the classification, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of articulation disorders, phonological disorders, and childhood apraxia of speech, with a focus on evidence-based practice. She discusses the evolution of current practices, terminology, special populations, such as children with co-occurring speech and language disorders and craniofacial anomalies, and those who have been internationally adopted, intervention approaches, and speech intervention for various disorders in everyday practice. Updated and expanded, this edition has new material on apps, working with multilingual children and children acquiring languages other than English, communities of practice in communication sciences and disorders, distinguishing delay from disorder, linguistic sciences, counseling and managing difficult behavior, and the neural underpinnings of and new approaches to treating childhood apraxia of speech. Expert essays by academics, clinicians, and researchers in audiology, clinical phonology, family therapy, and speech-language pathology and speech and language therapy are included throughout, many of them new or updated for this edition.
