The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.

The book is intended for students on postgraduate courses in TESOL or
Applied Linguistics, or for teachers wishing to do action research to find
out more about how learners learn language.
