This bestselling and trusted text: - Covers the full range of communication disorders in children, including nonverbal or minimally verbal children - Includes an extensive discussion of issues in using standardized tests along with detailed information on psychometric principles and offers a detailed discussion of alternative assessment approaches that minimize the problems inherent to standardized tests - Describes a new, comprehensive, and integrated assessment approach that derives its strengths from the traditional as well as several alternative approaches - Addresses the multicultural issues in assessing communication disorders in children and integrates multicultural assessment procedures into the assessment protocols offered for all communication disorders - Contains two chapters for each disorder: one on resources that offers scholarly and research background on the disorder and one on resources that describe practical procedures and protocols that save preparation time and effort for the clinician New to the Third Edition - A PluralPlus companion website allows clinicians to view, modify, and print the asse
