What are today's best interventions for supporting language acquisition and literacy for children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH)?
This comprehensive textbook-and-DVD set brings the answers to life for tomorrow's speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and educators. The newest addition to the respected Communication and Language Intervention (CLI) series, this important volume enlisted more than a dozen experts to present evidence-based intervention approaches, spanning the critical early years of language development through the complex reading and writing challenges of the school years.
Chapters cover a continuum of available communication approaches--from auditory-focused to visually-focused to simultaneous use of speech and sign--while encouraging the use of individualized interventions to meet each child's needs. To prepare professionals for decades of effective, evidence-based practice, the included video clips demonstrate how to implement assessments and interventions and work successfully with children and families.
