Reviews

'This is a delightful and an important book. The mixture of real life examples and linguistically sophisticated analyses is just right. Chiat focuses especially intently on phonological problems and word learning problems and the cascading effects these can have on other aspects of language development. Throughout, we never lose sight of individual children with their own individual problems.' Professor Michael Tomasello, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig 'A clear and accessible description of children's language problems and the complications they pose. Its many examples of the communicative struggles faced by these children will serve as a helpful reminder of why our task of solving the mysteries of language disorders is so important.' Laurence B. Leonard, Professor of Audiology and Speech Sciences, Purdue University 'This is simply a great book. Buy it, read it and keep it on your shelf for dipping into.' AFASIC News
