“This thought-provoking text is aimed at practitioners, those who engage in everyday conversation with individuals with intellectual disabilities and researchers who employ conversation analysis (CA). This book reminds us that these individuals and their support workers can benefit from engaging in more mindful and reflective practice with regard to everyday discourse.” (British Journal of Learning Disabilities, 7 August 2013)
