The book describes both the remarkable changes in language knowledge and use that occur from infancy through high school, and also the differences in the process due to variations in experience. What has been found to be good educational practice during each of these stages is discussed, emphasizing that among other things, good practice involves awareness of, and planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.
