Product Description: This cutting edge resource explores the latest research in the area of language-learning-reading deficits and provides therapists with practical information that they can use in the classroom to treat students with speaking, listening, reading, and writing problems. It provides a very research-based look at reading and language disorders, beginning with the neurological and genetic basis for these disorders, covering the developmental process, and looking at assessment issues such as the narrative genre as a diagnostic tool, miscue analysis, scaffolding during oral reading, and design of thematic units for measuring outcomes. The appendices include extremely useful forms for diagnostic purposes in clinical settings, as well as planning and implementing intervention and documenting progress over time. A bound-in CD packaged with the book contains ready-to-use forms that are referred to in the practice chapters - including: a Miscue Tally Sheet; sample factual, interpretation, and interference questions; a Narrative Recording Form; a Story Map; and a Skills/Concepts to Target Sheet (i.e., a lesson plan). Written by a speech-language pathologist, this book is designed to help SLPs understand their evolving role in literacy development to better help the students they treat to achieve academic success.

  • This is one of the first books to examine the link between oral language disorders and reading and writing disabilities.
  • Well-referenced and up-to-date coverage addresses the latest research in this area.
  • The author is a licensed, certified speech-language pathologist with over 15 years of experience in various settings, including public schools, universities, Head Start, nursing homes, home healthcare, and research.
  • Includes a chapter on long term prognosis for LLD, plus coverage of alternative service delivery models.
  • Includes sample dialogues between children and therapists during oral reading.
  • Offers information on how to design thematic units (a collection of literature and related activities that explore a particular topic), as well as sample excerpts from texts that can be used for thematic units.
  • Includes a CD-ROM with forms that can be tailored, printed, and used in practice to document progress in reading and comprehension over time.
  • Forms on the CD are highlighted in the book with a CD icon, so readers are aware of material that is on the CD.
  • Presents information on how to help children plan, draft, proofread, and edit their writing.
  • Offers advice on deciding how long a language-impaired child should remain in therapy and when therapy should be concluded.
  • Appendices include the following forms: Miscue Analysis System; Miscue Analysis Tally Sheet; Sample typed transcript for recording miscues; Sample factual, interpretation, and inference questions; Question Response Scoring System; Narrative Recording Form; Narrative Scoring Criteria; Communicative Reading Strategies (CRS) Techniques; Story Map; and Skills/Concepts to Target Sheet (i.e., a lesson plan)
  • Detailed instructions describe how to use the forms, along with sample oral reading transcripts, responses to factual, interpretation, and inference questions, and narrative samples from live subjects that have already been scored.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
