This book’s aim is to discuss in some detail the range of speech and language difficulties that children may experience in the classroom and to offer the practitioner an educational perspective on these difficulties.  Also addressed are speech and language difficulties from other perspectives, namely medical, linguistic and psycholinguistic.  Throughout the book, there is discussion about the relationship between these approaches, pointing out their strengths in helping to understand the nature of language difficulties as well as where they fall short of a fuller understanding.
