This is one of the few publications on early communication development which actually manages to succesfully combine practical knowledge and experience with theoretical findings. With a host of practical suggestions for observation, assessment and intervention with pre-verbal children, this is a useful book for teachers, Speech & Language Therapists and others working with adults and children in a range of setting. There is a useful description of the PVCS (PreVerbal Communication Schedule) - on of teh most widely used preverbal assessments. There is also information on the Pragamatics Profile, Affective Communication Assessment and Early Communication Assessment. In addition to in-depth discussion on pre-intentional and early formal communication skills, the second edition of this book goes further to provide suggestions for development of early concepts and language functions. After reading this, I found that my approach to developing preverbal children's communication changed...for the better. An inexpensive but highly useful book.

Bought as part of a Speech Pathlogy course to do some reading in advance. Fantastically written, very useful and good for those with limited experience with chlid development too.
