Speech and Language by Amanda A. Sleeper

This Gray Matter guide explores the ways we learn to speak and use language. The author reveals how and why children are able to develop language skills quickly, pinpoints the regions of the brain involved in coordinating speech and language, and describes various disorders that can disrupt language development. Speech and Language covers sign language and second languages, in addition to spoken language.


With curriculum-based information about the brain and how it works, as well as topics related to everyday life, these books can be read for research or pleasure.
