Language Sampling with Adolescents: Implications for Intervention, now in its second edition, provides guidelines for analyzing spoken and written language production in adolescents. It is geared toward graduate students and speech-language pathologists who work with middle school and high school students (Grades 5-12). Included within the book are tables, figures, and practical exercises (with answer keys) to help readers understand how to analyze the content and structure of the different adolescent language genres--conversational, narrative, expository, and persuasive--and how to utilize this information in establishing functional language goals and implementing intervention activities for adolescents with language disorders.

The second edition includes revised and updated content along with two new chapters: "Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders," which addresses how to adjust standard language sampling procedures for adolescents with ASD, and "Analyzing Language Samples from Adolescents," which provides speaking and writing language samples from various genres elicited from adolescents with typical language development (TLD).

Adolescents' ability to express themselves with clarity, precision, and efficiency is essential for success in contemporary educational settings. Language Sampling with Adolescents: Implications for Intervention, Second Edition, is a must-have resource for those working with students to achieve that success.

Praise for the First Edition

"... An accessible and highly informative guide to eliciting and analysing language samples for a client group whose complex needs may not always be recognized and properly addressed through the use of formal assessment tools alone. One of the main strengths of the book lies in the multidisciplinary and collaborative nature of the assessment and intervention processes described ... Nippold adds breadth to the assessment and intervention processes for young people in school environments so that their functional communication and language needs can be more accurately and successfully met."
