Kayser (communications sciences and disorders, Saint Louis U.) and her collaborators use narratives and case studies to give preschool teachers and speech language pathologists a better understanding of the specific needs of Latino preschoolers and their families. They describe how Latino children fit in the cultures of both the US and Latin America and how both nations typically handle early childhood education, then build upon these basics by describing child development and health, family and child socialization, communication disorders most common in Latino children, psychological and cognitive assessment and screening for speech and communication skills, treatment, parent programs, and avenues of further research. They include case history questions, a summary of curanderismo beliefs and practices, examples of morphological and syntactical markers, and provide resources for books and materials.
