Reading, Writing and Speech Problems in Children

Nature volume 141, page 997 (04 June 1938) | Download Citation



THIS book contains the third of the Thomas W. Salmon Memorial Lectures. The writer gives an account of his well-known work on disorders of the language faculty in children. He discusses the various disorders of language found in the adult as a basis for considering the language disorders of children. The work is based on his very wide clinical experience of ten years, combined with pathological material. He also gives the results of therapeutic efforts based on this work, and shows that many children with speech defects have derived benefit. The work is a most valuable addition to our knowledge of speech defects not only in children but also in adults.
