KIRKUS REVIEW

Meeting a long-standing need of professionals and laymen who handle children -- teachers, parents, administrators, social workers, physicians, students, etc., -- from nursery school age right on up, this book by a group of experts from the University of Iowa Speech Clinic (one of the most reputable in the U. S.) covers the field in a way that can give comprehensive insight and help to all who must handle speech problems. The major problems are described in clear detail, there are suggestions for help but more important, perhaps, are lists of the things NOT to do in each disorder. The best professional advice, short of a trained speech correctionist, is here available in one comprehensive book, which should be required reading for teachers and physicians. Appendices include case histories, projects for students, stories for lip reading practice, sample articulation tests with instructions, group work for stutterers, etc., etc., and selected references. Exhaustive and definitive.
