Description 1 online resource (184 pages)
Contents Are language and emotional development linked? -- The links between communication difficulties and emotional and behavioural problems -- Undetected communication problems, their impact and why they are undetected -- Unidentified and unmet communication needs in young people in 'public care' -- The identification and assessment of communication difficulties -- What can be done to help young people with communication and emotional and behavioural problems?
Summary Children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD) are far more likely to have communication problems than their peers. Exploring the ways in which children's language and emotional development are linked, Melanie Cross considers the reasons why behavioural and communication difficulties often occur together. Identifying the common causes of these problems and the reasons why they often go undetected, she provides practical guidelines for assessing communication skills and the complexities of identifying communication problems in children, including children in public
