This session will provide an overview of the generic advice that would typically be offered by a speech and language therapist in the UK when advising parents of children with speech and language delay. Much of this advice is transferable across a range of conditions and has been shown to positively influence spoken language acquisition in children developing typically and atypically.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Identify the key techniques that have been found to promote communication skill development
  • Recognise the environmental and contextual features needed for optimal language development
  • Differentiate between fact (evidence) and fiction (opinion) when offering advice to parents

The second half of the twentieth century saw a significant change in the beliefs about the role of language ‘input’ in child language acquisition, and consequently the value of finely tailored advice to parents and others.
