Language, Play and Early Literacy for Deaf Children: The Role of Parent Input
Brown, P. Margaret; Watson, Linda M.
Deafness & Education International, v19 n3-4 p108-114 2017
This paper reviews and synthesizes research into the ways in which parents support their child across three major developmental domains in early childhood: early language, play and early literacy. We show how these domains are linked to each other and suggest that there is some evidence that interventions in all of them will promote mutual development. Early interventions that focus on parent-child interactive experiences that are both routine and 'exotic' in nature are likely to be more powerful than practitioner-dominated interventions.
