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. Identified are models for effective collaboration among speech-language pathologists, general and special educators, and reading specialists, in the contexts of No Child Left Behind and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Chapters cover a range of approaches to targeting core areas of literacy--word recognition, reading comprehension, writing, and spelling. Particular attention is given to meeting the learning needs of children most at risk for being "left behind," including those with language learning difficulties. Throughout, case examples and practice recommendations enhance the utility of the volume as a professional resource and text.
