Focusing for the most part on the pre-school years, the period during which the foundations for language development are laid, 'Language Development and Language Impairment' uses a problem-based approach, designed to motivate students to find the information they need to identify and explore learning issues that a particular speech or language issue raises. It examines the development of a child’s phonological system, the growth of vocabulary, the development of grammar, and issues related to conversational and narrative competence.
