'The Handbook of Child Language Disorders masterfully brings together carefully written state-of-the-art chapters on diverse language disorders and their phenotypes, etiologies, and intervention methods. Its interdisciplinary scope, ranging from genetics and neurobiology to linguistics, and its unique focus on behavioural and neuroscientific research methods and multilingual acquisition contexts make it an invaluable resource for students, seasoned researchers, and practitioners alike.' - Vicky Chondrogianni, University of Edinburgh, UK

'Richard Schwartz has assembled a remarkable array of researchers to provide a deep, clinically trenchant, and wonderfully nuanced account of children with language disorders. The Handbook of Child Language Disorders is a must-read for students, clinicians, and researchers interested in understanding the underlying bases of language disorders in children, and in their instantiation across diagnostic categories and language learning contexts.' - Lisa Goffman, University of Texas at Dallas, USA

'This second edition updates the unique endeavour of the first edition to bring together research, assessment, and intervention results with the most recent developments, incorporating changes in terminology and in the definitions of disorders. It remains the go-to reference work for both researchers and clinicians seeking state-of-the-art information on the various aspects and different forms of developmental language impairment.' - Agnes Lukacs, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary

'Professor Schwartz has delivered a comprehensive, thought-provoking, engaging guide to child language disorders. Each chapter is filled with important information and insights. I believe the Handbook of Child Language Disorders is an essential resource: a must-read for students, researchers, and practitioners alike.' - Gina Conti-Ramsden, The University of Manchester, UK

'The fact that a revision of the Handbook of Child Language Disorders is necessary after only seven years testifies to the richness of the research in this field. The book is a treasure trove for researchers and students, a reliable and well-informed guide to our current state of knowledge.' - Jan de Jong, University of Bergen, Norway
