You, Your Child, and Language: Activities for Language Development. Second Edition
Nebraska Univ. Medical Center, Omaha. Meyer Children's Rehabilitation Inst.
Designed to accompany a slide and tape package, this booklet outlines the role parents can take in children's language development. Following an introduction which familiarizes parents with the concepts of receptive language (comprehension of spoken language) and expressive language (the information a person is trying to communicate and the form that communication takes), the material can be divided into two sections. Section 1, dealing with methods for teaching receptive language, includes general suggestions, suggestions for encouraging non-verbal children, and brief discussions of self-talk, parallel talk, dysfluency, modeling, and vocabulary development. Section 2 offers several specific activities for developing each of the following concepts: following directions, body parts, object identification, picture identification, action words, spatial relationships, colors, and classification. For each activity, materials and procedures are outlined. A vocabulary list is included. (LP)
