Children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD) are far more likely to have communication problems than their peers. Exploring the ways in which children's language and emotional development are linked, Melanie Cross considers the reasons why behavioural and communication difficulties often occur together.

Identifying the common causes of these problems and the reasons why they often go undetected, including children in public care, she provides practical guidelines for assessing communication skills and the complexities of identifying communication problems in children. She shows how improving children's communication can also improve their behaviour and that speech and language therapy is an important, although often absent, service for children with EBD.

With a range of strategies to help children and young people to develop their emotional and communicative skills, this accessible guide is an invaluable resource for speech and language therapists, social workers, teachers and other health professionals working with young people with emotional, behavioural and communication problems.

'This book is just what I've been looking for, mainly because it draws together all the recent literature and research around children's social and emotional difficulties, and their link to communication difficulties. More than that, though, it encourages the reader to think about the depth of children's development, and investigate further. I found it quite inspiring.' -SureStart
