For speech-language pathologists, Bleile (communication sciences and disorders, U. of Northern Iowa) offers clinical tools for assessing and treating speech disorders in school-aged students who have difficulty acquiring the eight late-acquired sounds. He describes the resources for evaluation in general, then applies them to each sound, including its definition, acquisition, relative frequency, errors, key environments, possible metaphors, touch cues, screening tests, demonstrations, phonetic placement and shaping techniques, exercises, activities, and word lists. He includes a chapter illustrating the use of the resources to evaluate and treat students in one school setting. This edition adds a new chapter on the motor learning perspective on assessing and treating the late eight, written by another specialist in communication sciences and disorders. The material on the DVD has been expanded to include 10 demonstration videos showing a motor learning perspective. It also contains reproducible cheat sheets; exercises; word lists; forms; shells for speech exercises and language activities; demonstrations of place, manner, and voicing; phonetic placement and shaping techniques; words divided by phonetic and word environments; deletions; themes; and minimal pairs.
