This is the book to read if you have a child with any type of problems related to speech/language. It thoroughly explains the entire process: diagnosis, IEPs, what to expect in school, what services they can have, what you can do as a parent, etc. I gained a lot of insight into my son's thought process with regard to his language/auditory processing. Very helpful. Highly recommend this to any parent wanting to know more about their child's challenges.

This book is a good review of many speech, language, and listening problems. However, it covers so much that it doesn't go into depth on any of the conditions (no more than 2 or 3 pages). Its probably most helpful if you're trying to identify a problem, but not as useful if you already know what the problem is and are looking for info on it (like I was).
