Application:Language Development Face-to-Face
Part 4: Interview on Developmental Leaps and Lags in Language Learning
This week, you will interview an early childhood teacher or a speech pathologist on the topic of language development, including examples of children whose language development is outside the normal range; or you will interview the parent of a child with atypical language development. The goal is to expand your understanding of developmental differences in language development or atypical language development, and the impact on children and families you may potentially work with in the future.
