      Abstract:

      We now know much more about the process of language development in
      all children, and also much more about variations in the process due
      to multi-cultural and multi-linguistic backgrounds, and
      developmental anomalies. The book describes both the remarkable
      changes in language knowledge and use that occur from infancy
      through high school, and also the differences in the process due to
      variations in experience. What has been found to be good educational
      practice during each of these stages is discussed, emphasising that
      among other things, good practice involves awareness of, and
      planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.
