Language Impairment and Psychopathology in Infants, Children, and Adolescents

Language Impairment and Psychopathology in Infants, Children, and Adolescents

  • Nancy J. Cohen - University of Toronto & the Hincks-Dellcrest Institute

June 2001 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Language Impairment and Psychopathology in Infants, Children and Adolescents examines the remarkably high correlation between language impairment and a range of psychopathologic disorders in children and adolescence

Nancy J. Cohen provides an authoritative account of the types and range of language and communications impairments, including how language and communication relate to neurological functioning, attachment patterns, emotional regulation, academic achievement, and cognitive development. From a clinical perspective, this book covers impairment definitions and terminology, conditions associated with language impairment, developmental processes affected by language, assessment, and treatment interventions. Throughout, case studies illustrate the contribution of language and communication impairments to transactions, adaptations, and maladaptations that can occur during development. Findings from the literature, including the author's own research program, highlight the consequences of having problems with language and communication on interactions with the family, with peers, in school, and in the clinic.
