Children's Intonation A Framework for Practice and Research

Children's Intonation: A Framework for Practice and Research is a practical guide that focuses on the nature, causes and assessment of intonation problems for children and adolescents. Highlighting the importance of intonation for everyday conversational interaction and the implications of this for teaching and therapy contexts, this book addresses the following questions:

Clinically oriented, this book explores these questions through case studies that cover a range of developmental communication difficulties, including autism spectrum disorders, hearing impairment and specific speech and language difficulties. It provides readers with a tool for profiling children's intonation skills, a developmental phase model to explain typical and atypical intonation development, a psycholinguistic model of intonation processing, interactional perspectives on intonation use, and consideration of intonation in relation to both written and spoken language.
