Book recommendations re language disorders

The SALT suggests that my DS (aged 3.3 years) has a speech disorder and that his delay of comprehension is 18 months and delay of speech is 12 months. We are hoping that he can go to a special language unit within a mainstream school.
Can anyone recommend any good books about speech disorders so that I can gain a better understanding and hopefully get additional exercises to what the SALT is recommending.

Thanks

These two websites have lots of useful information:

www.speechteach.co.uk free downloads - games and activities to help with speech problems.

www.talkingpoint.org.uk/ Speech, language and communication difficulties in children.

You may have already checked out this thread but if you have not, you may find it helpful.

I am not saying that this could be an answer to why your son has a speech disorder, but APD can contribute to problems with speech as we found out with our daughter.

Good luck
