Abstract:

Second language learners often produce language forms resembling those of
children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI). At present, professionals
working in language assessment and education have only limited diagnostic
instruments to distinguish language impaired migrant children from those who
will eventually catch up with their monolingual peers. This book presents a
comprehensive set of tools for assessing the linguistic abilities of bilingual
children. It aims to disentangle effects of bilingualism from those of SLI,
making use of both models of bilingualism and models of language impairment.
The book’s methods-oriented focus will make it an essential handbook for
practitioners who look for measures which could be adapted to a variety of
languages in diverse communities, as well as academic researchers.
