SLI HandbookThe SLI Handbook 
This book is for parents of children with specific language impairment (SLI). It will help parents to understand this complicated and confusing difficulty, by describing what SLI can look like in children of all ages and how it is different from other forms of speech, language and communication needs.

It explains the processes that children with SLI may go through once they have the right diagnosis. It also outlines the kinds of schools available to them with examples of what good support looks like.
