Child and Adolescent Communication Disorders: Organic and Neurogenic Bases is a comprehensive undergraduate textbook for courses related to the organic and neurogenic bases of child and adolescent language disorders. It is a must-have text for anyone in the field of communication sciences and disorders who works with children and adolescent populations. This text examines various disorders and their related communication deficits: neurogenic disorders, developmental brain differences, emotional and behavioral disorders, central auditory processing disorders, craniofacial anomalies, and disorders secondary to environmental factors. Also addressed are key elements in assessment and treatment with a focus on interdisciplinary contributions, as well as evidence-based approaches to treatment with inclusion of new federal laws that affect identification of and intervention with school-aged children.
Along with detailed contributions from experts with backgrounds in both research and instruction, this text also incorporates updated material from the DSM-V: both the current language and classification as it specifically relates to autism and communication disorders in emotionally and behaviorally disordered youth.
