From the Back Cover

The essential resource for parents—revised and updated

Does your child have trouble learning to talk, putting sentences together, following directions, or being understood? Is explaining and describing a challenge? In this revised edition of Childhood Speech, Language, and Listening Problems, speech-language pathologist Patricia Hamaguchi—who has been helping children overcome problems like these for nearly thirty years—answers your questions to help you determine what's best for your child. It includes the following:

  • A complete description of all major communication disorders: what to look for, how therapy would be carried out, and what you can do at home to help
  • Help with navigating the evaluation process, understanding report jargon, and acclimating to special education
  • Updated details about new interventions and cutting-edge research in the field
  • Expanded information about autism spectrum disorders, neurobiological disorders, and auditory processing disorders
  • A new chapter on social language skills, play concerns, and quirky behaviors

"Provides valuable information for parents of children with speech, language, and listening problems."
—Sandra C. Holley, Ph.D., Former President, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Format: Paperback
This book is a good basic introduction to the various problems children can have with speech, language, and listening. It's written in a very readable fashion, with plenty of examples, and everything is well explained. It probably is more for the parent who is wondering if their child has a problem, or what that problem is, than it is for a parent who already has a child in therapy with an established diagnosis.

I had a stutter as a child and was in speech therapy from the time I was about 4 until the time I was in 8th grade and refused to go anymore. This book brought back many painful memories, but also enlightened me.

I have an adult son who struggled so much in school. He couldn't read the simple Dr. Seuss books in second or third grades, couldn't follow directions and struggled with homework. He was diagnosed ADHD in 1st grade and a behavior modification program developed by his teacher was a disaster. He went to meds in 2nd grade. But ... he still struggled. I requested testing numerous times in elementary school and middle school but I was always told he is passing (albeit with Cs and Ds). It wasn't until high school that I was finally successful in my request for testing. But, the school's interpretation was "normal". I appealed their reading and was sent to a private psychologist who diagnosed him as being dyslexic and having an auditory processing defect. The school still did not agree so they gave him remedial reading, through a program they designed themselves, for 10th grade. They did away with the additional reading in 11th grade saying he was "cured". I wanted to fight further, but my son dug in his heels because he was all "tested out". So, unfortunately, he still struggles. In reading this book I see that he had many more problems which were not addressed.

This book is coming at a good time for my grandson though. My grandson is entering kindergarten with an IEP for speech. He was in our local infants and toddlers program but didn't have many services. His original diagnosis was something to the effect of a speech delay.

I am a parent and bought this book to better understand my son who has Semantic Pragmatic Disorder, Articulation Disorder, Sensory Integration Disorder, and ADHD (high functioning autism). This book is SO informative. I have already recommended this book to a friend. It really puts things into perspective and helps to better understand so many things about your child. My son is almost 6, and despite all of knowledge I had already accumulated over the years- there is SO much in this book that I wish I had known/understood years ago.

A comprehensive yet to the point explanation of speech and language difficulties and therapy. Easy to understand for a lay person yet you will feel like an expert after reading it. Highly recommend. .

Ok....... So my child has a speech delay and he is now 4 years old. With the help of his therapist he has come a far way. This book never helped me as an experienced mother, don't know if it will help the person who is new to this problem. Its just a lot of information that does not apply to me or i already know.
