Reviews

"Dr. Battle's book is an attempt to be comprehensive about a subject of which volumes still need to be known. I particularly liked that she addresses disorders other than language acquisition. Her book, however, seems more appropriate for a graduate course than undergraduate." - Karen Mainess, Loma Linda Univ.
