What do you do when your child's teacher suggests that your child needs to be evaluated by a Speech Pathologist? Perhaps it doesn't surprise you. After all, you have noticed that Johnny avoids writing assignments, or Suzy just doesn't seem to hear you when give her directions. But - what if you're shocked? I mean really taken aback that this could be your child. The one that is so bright, that talked early and was always such a good communicator. What then?

Well, after spending 3 months struggling with abstract concepts and blaming myself, the schools, the daycare provider and anyone else I could think of, I finally plopped down in a local bookstore and went to work. After pouring over many books for over an hour, I settled on "Childhood Speech, Language, and Listening Problems : What Every Parent Should Know". I spent the next 5 nights staying up past midnight reading the book and comming to terms with my child's disability. Thanks to Ms. Hamaguchi I now have a clear understanding of what my childs needs are, both at home and at school. Ms. Hamaguchi explains, in simple terms, the way we speak and the way we listen. She then discusses what to look for, when to have your child evaluated and who is appropriate to perform the evaluation. Finally, she explains what kinds of testing are done and what the results mean. She clearly defines each type of learning disability and discusses the possible causes and characteristics of children with the problem. She also talks about how the child is affected, the recommended therapy and what parents can do to help. In addition,case studies are included to further illustrate each condition. Upon completion of this book, I had a very clear picture of what was going on and what path I needed to take.

What a great help this book has been for me, I only wish I had had it sooner. My daughter was evaluated by a Speech and Language pathologist who told me she needed therapy and was a high risk for a learning disability. I got the written evaluation, but had nothing to help me review it critically until I got this book. This book has been a tremendous help in that area. It discusses how an evaluation should proceed and what the test scores really mean. It gives the parent a tremendous amount of very useful information in the speech, language and listening areas. It also gives you benchmarks, by age, of where your child should be in those areas. All this is done briefly, succintly. This book made sense of an area that I found so confusing. The information found in this book will be useful to the parent of any child suspected of having a speech, language or listening delay or disorder. It also helps parents seek assistance in these areas. Each potential problem is discussed individually, as well as different types of treatment for those problems. If you have even the slightest reason to suspect your child has an issue in these areas, or an educator or speech and language pathologist is telling you your child does, you must, must read this book. It will provide you with valuable information and enable you to speak intelligently so that you may better help your child.

I think this book would be very helpful to parents of older children who notice a speech impediment or delay. It was less helpful to me, a parent of a preschooler, since my daughter doesn't have much speech to work with and her problems appear to be more fundamental. It's full of information about negotiating with school districts and special education programs, again of more use to parents of older children.

My son was 2 years old when his daycare teacher told us that he had a listening problem. I read this book cover to cover, and it is extremely informative. It covers a spectrum of language and listening problems. After reading it I was able to identify Nicky's specific problem, and it helped me form an action plan for Nick's elementary school years. Most important of all, it gave me confidence and hope that I could deal with Nick's disability and help him get the most out of school.

Since finding this book two months ago, I have shared it with several of the parents of children on my caseload. The chapter on Listening Problems is especially valuable; we see many children with "receptive language delays" and this chapter does and excellent job of helping to sort out what kind of problem may be affecting a child's ability to understand what she hears. I also shared this book with the pediatric audiologists at our center, and they found the listening chapter to be very accurate and useful as well. I will continue to recommend this book as a resource to our parents of children with speech, language, and listening challenges.
