Book Title: Children with Specific Language Impairment

Author: Laurence B. Leonard

Book Description:

Dr. Leonard completed Children with Specific Language Impairment during the time that I was doing post-doctoral work in his lab. It is a very significant and influential book in the field of child language disorders; almost ten years later, it is still the only thorough synthesis of research on specific language impairment, and essential reading for anyone interested in language development. For me personally, it represents the enormous amount of learning I did during that post-graduate experience, and the way my research program became re-focused from typical to atypical language development. I return to this book every so often to be reminded of why I got excited about the field in the first place, and to generate ideas for research and teaching. As my own understanding grows, I keep finding something new.
