Title: Language Disabilities in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity
Written By: Deirdre Martin
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691590
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

Language Disabilities in Cultural and Linguistic Diversity takes a critical
perspective on traditional bio-cognitive-social approaches to language
disabilities – specific language impairment, communication difficulties,
dyslexia and deafness. A socio-cultural approach orientates a
reinterpretation of research, educational practices and policies in
assessment, teaching and intervention. A Vygotskian framework affords
repositioning of assessment, learning and development for language
disabilities as they are influenced and shaped by experiences of
multilingualism, culture, ethnicity and race. The author, rather than
present definitive answers, aims to offer new analyses and extend current
understanding of linguistic phenomena fraught by dilemmas of disentangling
diversity and disability. The volume serves as a source of reflection and
inquiry for students, professionals and policy makers in education and
health who are interested in disability and language disabilities in
multilingual and multicultural contexts.
