The manual includes information on general aspects of communication including its normal development and the early identification of difficulties.  There are comprehensive sections on assessment and goal planning including suggestions of practical activity ideas.  The manual looks in detail at five of the most common causes of communication impairment; mental handicap, cerebral palsy, hearing impairment, multiple disability and special difficulties with speech.

This manual is intended for mid-level rehabilitation workers who are involved in helping children with communication difficulties and their parents.  However, it can be useful for health and education workers at any level.
