Book Information


Title: Multilingual Aspects of Speech Sound Disorders in Children
Edited By: Sharynne McLeod
Brian Goldstein
URL: t
Series Title: Communications Disorders Across Languages

"Multilingual Aspects of Speech Sound Disorders in Children" explores both
multilingual and multicultural aspects of children with speech sound disorders.
The 30 chapters have been written by 44 authors from 16 different countries
about 112 languages and dialects. The book is designed to translate research
into clinical practice. It is divided into three sections: (1) Foundations, (2)
Multilingual speech acquisition, (3) Speech-language pathology practice. An
introductory chapter discusses cross-linguistic and multilingual aspects of
speech sound disorders in children. Subsequent chapters address speech
sound acquisition, how the disorder manifests in different languages, cultural
contexts, and speakers, and addresses diagnosis, assessment and
intervention. The research chapters synthesize available research across a wide
range of languages. A unique feature of this book are the chapters that translate
research into clinical practice. These chapters provide real-life vignettes for
specific geographical or linguistic contexts.
