Speech, Language, and Hearing Disorders: A Guide for the Teacher / Edition 2by Herbert J. Oyer, William H. Haas, Barbara J. Hall
Pub. Date: 11/28/1993
Publisher: Allyn & Bacon, Inc.
A comprehensive, yet basic book on speech, language, and hearing disorders written for classroom teachers with no previous knowledge of the subject needed. It addresses the questions classroom teachers have asked most about these disorders. The book covers not only the disorders that are commonly seen in children but also the Federal Laws that support the rehabilitative work done for them. Topics covered include problems of articulation and phonology, language disabilities, stuttering, voice disorders, hearing impairment and the other populations that include the cerebral palsied child, syndromes such as fetal alcohol, Down, Alport and Fragile X which have implications for speech, hearing, and language. It also discusses poverty, abuse, neglect, AIDS, brain damage, and lead poisoning. A self-test and a summary are presented at the end of each chapter. Case examples are presented throughout. In-service K-12 classroom teachers and special education teachers are the main market, but speech pathologists and audiologists may also be interested. A Longwood Professional Book.
