Language Development: Foundations, Processes, and Clinical Applications, Second Edition provides an accessible overview of language development covering the typical course of language development within the clinical context of language assessment and intervention. The Second Edition examines the biological, developmental, and environmental systems of neurotypical children, and the role of these systems as linguistic input in the child’s environment contributing to language development. This comprehensive resource, written and contributed by over 20 experts in the field, provides students with an understanding of the foundations of language development in terms of each individual child’s communication needs. With case studies woven throughout the text, students are able to follow the progress of children with normal language development as well as those showing signs of problems. These cases and clinical practice applications will help students prepare for the clinical challenges they will face in their professional careers.

Every year, new information, new theories, and new evidence are published about development to explain the complexities that create and facilitate the language acquisition process. The authors who have contributed to this text provide the latest research and perspectives on language development among neurotypical children.  This valuable text bridges biological, environmental, technological, and professional venues to advance the development of professionals and children alike.

Nina Capone Singleton is an Associate Professor in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at Seton Hall University. She earned her BA from Boston University (1990); her master’s degree (1997) and PhD (2003) were conferred by Northwestern University. Dr. Capone Singleton has held clinical positions at the Children’s Seashore House (Philadelphia), Children’s Memorial Hospital (Chicago), Bright Futures Early Intervention Clinic (Evanston, Illinois), and the Westchester Institute for Human Development (Valhalla, New York). She has held the Associate Editor position and published in the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research, and published in the Journal of Child Language, American Journal of Speech Language Pathology, and Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in the Schools journal.

Dr. Capone Singleton is the director of the Developmental Language and Cognition Lab, and The Feeding Project, both at Seton Hall University. In her research, she is interested in (1) how children’s word learning evolves over time, (2) the relationship between learning the word form versus word meaning, and (3) using the gestural modality as a window onto what children know about the words they are learning. The Feeding Project’s mission details typical feeding development and how a pediatric feeding disorder can affect the parent-child relationship.
