I am an experienced reader on both language processing and expressive language disorders. I found this book to be a great concise manual to hand to a mainstream school teacher dealing with a child with processing issues. It's not too long, and it's a relatively clear and functional manual that doesn't become overly detailed or heavy. The only problem I can say is that it's a little pricey for the size, but there is something to be said for brevity - it gets straight to the point.

i felt that this was a really good introduction to Language Processing Problems that children can have. I bought it to learn more about processing in order to help my autistic son but after reading it i saw that my neurotypical daughter also has a very slight issue processing. That is why she has a hard time with long division and when she is quickly telling us a story she sometimes has a hard time spitting it out...it is mild but the book offers basic suggestions to overcome the very simple problems some children have. It's easy reading and once again I feel its a very good intro to this issue.

Format: Paperback
After years of not understanding what the "experts" said regarding language learning disabilities, this book gave easy to understand explanations of the processes involved in receptive and expressive language. Terminology, tests and practical strategies are discussed for parents, students and therapists. It is obvious after reading this book, that the "experts" whether in a public school setting or private one fail in their identification and treatment of language processing disorders because they do not understand it and do not do the right tests. The author, Cindy Gaulin, points out that these children are often not diagnosed, though, parents see problems with direction following, communication and memory. Sometimes these kids are labeled as ADD or lazy, struggling with language to the point their self esteem declines. I would highly recommend this book to any parent wanting insight into language processing. I wish I had had this book years ago.

This is a great book for parents with children with special needs. It details the processes the body goes through while accumulating language and auditory processes. I recommend it highly.

It is difficult to find information on language processing impairments. Most books are about speech. I was hoping to find a book with practical tips, games, strategies etc. to help my son. If you already have a diagnosis and a general understanding of your child's issues only one chapter of this book will be helpful. I wish there were reviews of assistive technologies, examples of ways to improve listening and speaking such as visual schedules etc- it left me wanting a lot more concrete examples of how to support my child through the day. Anyone found a book with more concrete suggestions?
