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.

Phonological assessment using a heirarchical framework, prelinguistic predictors of later language development, etc.
