"This volume provides an up-to-date review of current knowledge about phonological awareness, together with practical guidance for helping children acquire needed skills. The first comprehensive resource of its kind, the book presents research-based assessment and intervention frameworks for preschoolers to adolescents with varying learning needs."
"Featuring a wealth of illustrative case material, this user-friendly volume belongs on the desks of speech-language pathologists, reading specialists, and general and special education teachers, as well as instructors, students, and researchers in these areas. It will serve as a primary text in advanced undergraduate- or graduate-level seminars in phonological awareness, and as a supplemental text in courses in child language disorders or reading disabilities."--Jacket
