This book explains the importance of vocabulary for
academic, social, emotional, and employment
outcomes. It describes the vulnerability of vocabulary
skills in children and adolescents with speech, language
and communication needs (SLCN), and suggests
practical ways to support them as they learn.
It contains a theoretical overview of vocabulary
development in children and adolescents, and profiles
the vocabulary learning of children with SLCN.
Including an extensive range of practical resources,
programmes and strategies with the theory behind each
one, it is an essential resource for speech and language
therapists, secondary school teachers and support staff.
