This book provides a "comprehensive and up-to-date synthesis" of the current knowledge about normal and impaired bilingual and second language acquisition. Typical dual language development varies greatly from monolingual development, and professionals must understand these differences to successfully diagnose and treat dual language learners with language delays and disorders. The book divides dual langauge learners into two types: bilingual children, who have learned two languages from infancy, and second language learners, children who learn a second language after significant progress has been made in the first language. The book is divided into three sections: Foundations, Understanding Bilingual and Second Language Acquisition, and Clinical Implications. Eight case studies, with children representing the various types of dual language learners, are introduced in Chapter 1 and reoccur throughout the book.
