About this book

We now know much more about the process of language development in all children, and also much more about variations in the process due to multi-cultural and multi-linguistic backgrounds, and developmental anomalies. The book describes both the remarkable changes in language knowledge and use that occur from infancy through high school, and also the differences in the process due to variations in experience. What has been found to be good educational practice during each of these stages is discussed, emphasising that among other things, good practice involves awareness of, and planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.

Reviews

'It has been difficult to find a graduate-level book that teaches both the basics of language development and educational practices, especially for the population of school-age children beyond the earliest grades. To have language developments described for middle- and high-school is in itself already a major contribution of this book; to have placed these developments within a broader developmental continuum and link them to educational implications is simply to have written the book we applied language development folks have all been waiting for!' - Alison L. Bailey, Associate Professor, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
