Language Disorders in Bilingual Children and Adults, Third Edition, provides speech-language pathologists, advanced students in communication disorders programs, and clinical language researchers with information needed to formulate and respond to questions related to effective service delivery to bilingual children and adults with suspected or confirmed language disorders. The bilinguals of interest represent varying levels of first and second language proficiency across the lifespan. That is, bilingualism is not determined here by proficiency in each language, but rather by the individual’s experience or need for two languages.
In separate chapters, the book synthesizes the literature on bilingual children and adults with typical and atypical language skills. These chapters give the reader a deep understanding of the multiple factors that affect language development and disorders in those who rely on two languages for meaningful interactions. Chapters on assessment and intervention issues and methods are then presented for each population.
For children, the text focuses on developmental language disorder but also discusses secondary language disorders (such as autism spectrum disorder) in bilingual populations. For adults, the focus is on aphasia, with additional discussion of dementia, traumatic brain injury, and right hemisphere disorder. Although child and adult, typical and atypical populations are presented separately, all are considered within a unifying Dynamic Interactive Processing perspective and within a new Means-Opportunities-Motives framework for understanding language disorders in bilinguals. This broad theoretical framework emphasizes interactions between social, cognitive and communicative systems to form the basis for very practical implications related to assessment and intervention.
This third edition has been completely updated to reflect the current research on bilingual populations and the best practices for working with them. Studies at the intersection of bilingualism and language disorders have expanded to include additional disorders and new language combinations. The authors synthesize the current literature and translate it for clinical use.

This new atlas provides an illustrated guide to the investigation, diagnosis and management of infectious diseases of the ear, nose and throat. In the first section of the book the authors begin with an overview of the microbiology of ENT infections, describing the main infective organisms, and the tests by which the presence of bacterial, viral, fungal and other infections can be confirmed. This is followed by a brief summary of the principles of pharmacological management, the agents currently in use and their mode of action.
The three main sections of the atlas focus in turn on infections of the ear, the nose and nasopharynx and paranasal sinuses, and the mouth and throat. All follow the same approach, beginning with the basic principles of the physical examination and a review of commonly presenting signs and symptoms. Subsequent sections guide the reader through the various possible diagnoses, the causative organisms and the means by which the infection can be treated, all supported by diagnostic algorithms, tables and high quality colour photographs.The atlas concludes with a special section describing some of the most important tropical infections which are encountered with increasing frequency and with which the clinician needs to be familiar.
