Additional Book Details
The Late Eight, Third Edition,provides clinical resources to help clinicians, students, and academics evaluate and treat late-acquired sounds. The text is an ideal resource for anyone working with individuals whose speech contains errors affecting [θ], [ð], [s], [z], [l], [r], [?], or [t?]. Additionally, vocalic [r] is included because it often serves as a step to reaching consonantal [r].
The third edition keeps (and slightly modifies) the clinical resources while expanding the toolkit to include new essential clinical concepts, including evidence-based practice, Spanish-influenced English, the curriculum, and a new treatment model. In addition, the third edition replaces the CD of previous editions with an expanded and flexible interactive companion website.
