This book is the first to summarize the voluminous literature on the development of cognitive, codification, language, and expressive/affective (CCCE) skills from a clinical standpoint. Emphasizing the need to ground services in research and theory, the author constructs three basic clinical models--a conceptual model for understanding, a descriptive model for formal assessment, and a facilitative model for intervention. These models have major implications for the work of all those who deal with CCCE problems in a professional capacity.


"…very comprehensive in scope….clearly written and well organized. We can recommend this text to anyone interested in cognitive socialization and how to apply these concepts to a clinical setting. We applaud Muma's assertion that we question the direction of our profession and constantly strive for the best theoretical and philosophical views to ensure improved client progress."
