  1. Social Communication Development and Disorders

    NEW  This new standout volume is the first to describe developmental areas associated with social competence and social communication, as well as provide evidence-based information on effective assessment and intervention for children who have problems with social communication and social interactions. 

  2. Unusual Productions in Phonology

    NEW    The universalist view that acquisition of phonology is guided by universal principles has been the dominant position for decades. More recently, an alternative view has brought into focus the relationship between developmental markedness and language-specific input frequencies. With entirely original chapters on non-ambient-like productions by typically and atypically developing children, and second language learners, Unusual Productions in Phonology delves deeply into these competing explanations to show that patterns observed do not uniquely lend themselves to one or the other explanations.

  3. Unusual Productions in Phonology

    Just Published  "In Unusual Productions in Phonology, internationally known experts present a new and unique examination of non-ambient phonology from multiple perspectives of typical and atypical children and second language learners. This volume is a welcome and much-needed addition to the literature."

    --Brian A. Goldstein, La Salle University, Philadelphia, PA, USA
