The national trend emphasized collaborative intervention within general education classrooms, where the impaired student can engage in extensive and meaningful verbal interactions with peers and teachers on a more regular basis. The need to integrate teachers, speech-language pathologists, and other school specialists in using the classroom context has given rise to the need for a written resource to use in combining the collaborative process with decision -making. This long-awaited book, an outgrowth of inservice training programs on collaborative language intervention, fills that need.
