For professionals working with children who are bilingual or learning a second language during early childhood, it can be difficult to determine whether typical language development or a disorder is present. This resource on bilingual and second language acquisition can help. Research-based and accessible, Dual Language Development and Disorders dispels many myths about dual language development and answers key questions that might arise as speech-language pathologists and educators work with children and their parents. Readers will also benefit from detailed profiles of dual language learners, definitions of key terms, and clinical implications sections for selected chapters. Filled with the information needed to make critical decisions, this book is a valuable reference for in-practice SLPs and educators, an ideal textbook for graduate students, and an easy-to-understand resource to share with parents.
