The Late Eight, Third Edition provides clinical resources to help clinicians, students, and academics evaluate and treat late acquired sounds. The late eight are typically the last acquired by English-speaking children and are most likely to challenge school-aged students as well as non-native English speakers, both children and adults. The text is an ideal resource for anyone working with individuals whose speech contains errors affecting [theta], [d], [s], [z], [l], [r], [esh], or [tesh]. Additionally, vocalic [r] is included because it often serves as a step to reaching consonantal [r].The third edition keeps (and slightly modifies) the clinical resources while expanding the tool kit to include new essential clinical concepts, including evidence based practice, Spanish influenced English, the curriculum, and a new treatment model. In addition, the third edition replaces the CD of previous editions with an expanded and flexible interactive companion website.This edition includes 4 new chapters: Chapter 1: A Late 8 Update, Chapter 2: Using Evidence to Guide Clinical Practice, Chapter 3: The Late 8 en espanol, Chapter 4: Speech Sound Disorders, Literacy, and Curriculum.
It has also been enhanced with a PluralPlus companion website containing reproducible "cheat sheets," exercises, and word lists for clinical use; 24 different demonstrations of place, manner, and voicing;more than 70 phonetic placement and shaping techniques; 35 language awareness and speech activities; more than 4,000 words divided by phonetic and word environments; and more than 2,200 minimal pairs.
