Discusses the underlying processes needed for educational success.

This excellent, new text explains how to teach the language and literacy skills, strategies, and underlying processes needed for educational success. It brings together an array of experts to provide the latest practical and evidence-based guidance to school speech-language pathologists.

Organized Into 3 Sections:

  • Section 1: addresses the fundamentals of school SLP practice: who works on what; the ways treatment can be structured; and the “rules of the road” that govern special education and SLP services. This section explains evidence-based practice and helps students and clinicians make sense of the complicated world of research evidence. The best of skill-based and naturalistic intervention are combined in a RISE-based whole-part-whole framework. Academic standards, particularly the new Common Core State Standards, are used to link treatment to the classroom. This section ends with critical consideration of specific language impairment and reading disability that includes the latest brain research, and how second-language-learners fare in different instructional and treatment formats.
  • Section 2: details best practices for spoken and written language intervention. Chapters address how to effectively teach diverse and deep vocabulary knowledge, complex syntactic skills, and the narrative and informational discourse needed to understand and produce academic texts. A chapter is devoted to helping children at environmental risk to cope with the expectations of school.
  • Section 3: addresses the written code and the cognitive underpinnings of school success: phonological processing, word identification, reading fluency, and spelling. Language and print demands come together in a chapter addressing effective instruction for text comprehension. The book ends with “the final frontier” of supporting high school and college students who have reading difficulties.
