Additional Book Details
Language and Literacy Connections: Intervention for School-Age Children and Adolescents takes readers on a path of knowledge steeped in principles and practical applications. This much-needed new text uniquely integrates language learning and disorders and literacy together in a coherent and cohesive narrative that covers the challenges facing school-age students from early elementary levels through high school. Using past and current research and interventions from speech-language pathology (SLP) and reading and literacy arenas, the authors present transcripts, cases, and detailed intervention sessions to provide a template for daily practice. The text raises questions relating to why am I doing this? and provides some answers to this most complex, yet basic, question.
Language and Literacy Connections...
* Uses strong theoretical foundations with detailed applications to real-life situations and practices
* Highlights the different levels of literacy, from foundational to disciplinary, that underpin current thinking
* Includes three major sections that build upon one another as the authors navigate through: (1) conceptual frameworks, (2) practical applications across discourse intervention and individual language components, and (3) service delivery models
* Addresses the role of comprehension in auditory processing and classroom difficulties
* Compares effective and less effective intervention sessions with explanations about why each fall within a category
* Debunks common myths and practices that have been questionable for decades but that persist in practice
* Offers innovative suggestions related to providing collaborative service delivery procedures through virtual online platforms and specific lesson plans
* Answers the question asked by many school-based SLPs: How do I add literacy on top of my responsibilities when my caseloads are so large and demanding?
* Questions at the beginning of each chapter that reflect concerns of SLPs and their teams
* Projects and assignments that supplement and review the material
* Examples of teaching modules with practical lesson plans that integrate the role of SLPs in Interprofessional Practices (IPP) while explicitly addressing the curriculum across a variety of subject areas
