Assessment of Communication Disorders in Children: Resources and Protocols, Fourth Edition offers a unique combination of scholarly information, invaluable resources, and time-saving protocols on assessment of the full range of communication disorders in children, including nonverbal or minimally verbal children. Most resource books offer limited research and scholarly information, thus making them unsuitable as textbooks for academic courses on assessment and diagnosis. Similarly, most traditional textbooks do not include practical, easy-to-use, and time-saving resources and protocols that the practicing clinicians can readily use during assessment sessions. By combining the strengths of traditional texts with newer assessment resources and protocols, this one-of-a-kind book offers a single, comprehensive source that is suitable as a textbook and useful as a practical clinical resource. This bestselling and trusted text: * Includes an extensive discussion of issues in using standardized tests along with detailed information on psychometric principles and offers a detailed discussion of alternative assessment approaches that minimize the problems inherent to standardized tests * Describes a new, comprehensive, and integrated assessment approach that derives its strengths from the traditional as well as several alternative approaches * Addresses the multicultural issues in assessing communication disorders in children and integrates culturally responsive assessment procedures into the assessment protocols * Contains two chapters for each disorder: one on resources that offers scholarly and research background and one on resources that describe practical procedures and protocols that save the clinician’s preparation time New to the Fourth Edition: * A new section on the assessment of voice in transgender and gender diverse adolescents * A new section on selective mutism in bilingual children, included in alternative and integrated assessment of ethnoculturally diverse children * All normative tables placed in relevant chapter appendices for quick access * The content has been updated throughout to reflect the current state of research * Updated diagnostic features of all childhood communication disorders * All protocols streamlined and edited for precision (in book and on website) * Updated resources for commonly used assessment instruments and standardized tests, now available on the companion website * All defined and key terms are now bolded * Simplified writing style and reduced redundancy for increased readability and comprehension

This book constitutes a clear, comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the basic principles of psychological and educational assessment that underlie effective clinical decisions about childhood language disorders. Rebecca McCauley 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 qualitative assessment. Highlighting special considerations in testing and expected patterns of performance, she reviews the challenges presented by children with a variety of problems--specific language impairment, hearing loss, mental retardation, and autism spectrum disorders. Three extended case examples illustrate her discussion of each of these target groups. Her overarching theme is the crucial role of well-formed questions as fundamental guides to decision making, independent of approach. Each chapter features lists of key concepts and terms, study questions, and recommended readings. Tables throughout offer succinct summaries and aids to memory. Students, their instructors, and speech-language pathologists continuing their professional education will all welcome this invaluable new resource. Distinctive features include: A comprehensive consideration of both psychometric and descriptive approaches to the characterization of children's language A detailed discussion of background issues important in the language assessment of the major groups of children with language impairment Timely information on assessment of change--a topic frequently not covered in other texts Extensive guidance on how to evaluate individual norm-referenced measures for adoption An extensive appendix listing about 50 measures used to assess language in children A test review guide that can be reproduced for use by readers.

"Identifying children with language impairments has grown increasingly complex as a result of rapid and revolutionary progress in the field of communicative disorders. In Assessment of Communication and Language, leading experts in the field analyze the implications of advances in research and theory and suggest improvements to widely used methods and practices. Some of the important issues they discuss are who should be tested for speech/language disorders; how to adapt methods for children from multicultural backgrounds; what to do when English is a child's second language; the pros and cons of norm-referenced tests and criterion-referenced tests; new ways to use parent report; better methods for evaluating narrative discourse skills; what kinds of tests to use to develop an intervention plan; the best methods for verifying program progress; and new discoveries about language acquisition." "This comprehensive guide to communication and language assessment provides speech-language pathologists, psychologists, researchers, interventionists, special educators, and students with invaluable information and helpful strategies for integrating theoretical and practical advances into their daily work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
