Synopsis

Speech and Language Challenges The Ultimate Teen Guide by Marlene Targ Brill

This book will address the speech issues that affect all people, but specifically focus on the concerns of young adults-not just the how and whys of each issue, but how to cope with them. It will include teen interviews/stories, expert quotes, history of different conditions, definitions of technical terms necessary for understanding the conditions, media concerning speech problems (such as The King's Speech), and short biographies of well-known people who have dealt with and/or overcome these same issues.

The personal experiences shared in this book will appeal to this target audience and could be useful for students this age researching this topic. American Reference Books Annual Marlene Brill ... [addresses] the wide variety of communication difficulties a teen may have ... with her young adult ... book Speech and Language Challenges: The Ultimate Teen Guide. The book provides the academic definition of each area while keeping the topic concise enough to maintain the attention of a teen. Brill's book also offers additional resources (support groups, other books and websites), that expand the topic or offer a place to go for help... Personal accounts from teens assure the young readers they are not alone. Additionally, stories relating the personal struggles of well-known young adults encourage readers to continue to think positively while experiencing the same struggle...It's pretty ambitious for an author to try to tackle all of this in one book, and Marlene Brill did an impressive job.
