  • collaborative professional relationships
  • language delays, disorders, and differences

Communication Development and Disorders for Partners in Service equips participants in the service provision continuum to describe the components of language; interpret the implications of theories of language for interaction, evaluation, and intervention; describe the accomplishments in typical language development; compare and contrast typical with atypical language development; and describe the continuum of evaluation and intervention with appreciation of their contributions to this process.
