Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cynthia Core, PhD (George Washington University)
Description: This is a much-needed reference manual for speech-language pathology clinicians working with bilingual Spanish-English speaking children.
Purpose: It is intended to be a resource for normative data and to provide suggestions for theoretical models of assessment and intervention for bilingual children.
Audience: It should be very helpful for clinicians working with Spanish-English speaking children.
Features: This book includes basic information on bilingualism, bilingual education in the U.S., and cultural aspects of U.S.-Hispanic bilingual families. It also contains information from research with Spanish-English bilingual children outlining normative data and developmental patterns. The author includes a Spanish language preschool screening tool, a bilingual glossary of professional terminology, and information for parents of bilingual children in Spanish. Adaptations of "Developmental Sentence Types" (Lee 1974) and "Developmental Sentence Scoring" (Lee 1974) are important references for comprehensive measurement of grammar development in Spanish-speaking children. The resource list included in the book is very useful for clinicians, and it includes the most current assessment materials available. The book lacks specific examples of types of error patterns, which could help clinicians distinguish normal monolingual or bilingual developmental errors from unusual ones. The lengthy discussions on bilingual education and legislation may be less relevant to clinicians than normative data and aspects of bilingualism. The strong point of the book is its emphasis on the numerous considerations that must be made in the assessment of a bilingual child. The author makes it clear that a bilingual child operates under more than one set of cultural norms and expectations, and that point is critical for clinicians to understand.
Assessment: This book is well organized and brings together a wealth of information about bilingual language development and assessment. It is easy to use and contains an up-to-date compilation of normative data for all aspects of language development.
