Accessible and user-friendly, this volume presents evidence-based practices for integrating language and literacy knowledge to enhance children's learning in today's standards-based classrooms. While grounded in theory and research, the book focuses on day-to-day concerns in instruction and intervention, identifying models for effective collaboration among speech-language pathologists, general and special educators, and reading specialists. Chapters cover a range of approaches for targeting core areas of literacy—word recognition, reading comprehension, writing, and spelling—with particular attention to working with students with language learning difficulties.
