Campbell, Rhodene; Mueller, Penny Jean
The manual describes a workshop designed to provide parents of normal and hearing or language impaired young children with information on helping their child's communication development. The workshop series is presented in four sessions intended for 2 hours at a time. Preparation procedures are outlined along with facilitating factors. Curriculum content for each of the four sessions includes an agenda, list of objectives, materials needed, activities/procedures, and evaluation methods. Sample forms, charts, and ideas from previous workshops are included. Topics explored are the following (sample subtopics in parentheses): how children learn to talk (stages in language development); how hearing and talking interrelate (anatomy of the ear); how to help children listen and pay attention (communication signals, nonverbal communication); and how to improve children's talking (speech sounds, development of speech).
