Developing Spoken Language Using 3-D Conversations

Parents play a starring role in helping their children develop spoken language through listening. During the past decade, child language research has been focusing on what parents do to help their children develop exquisite spoken language skills. We have discovered that when parents engage in 3-D conversations with their children, spoken language learning opportunities are quantifiably and qualitatively rich.  Dr. Morrison will explain what 3-D conversations are and the role the intervention professionals plays in helping parents learn to create optimal conditions that set the child up for conversational (and spoken language) success!

Learner Outcomes:

At the end of the course, the learner will be able to:

  1. Identify the role that adults/parents play in helping their children become conversationally competent.
  2. Define parent responsiveness and its role in helping children develop spoken language.
  3. Describe Enhanced Milieu Teaching.
  4. Identify elements of learnable input, guided conversations, and purposeful responses.
  5. Set age and stage appropriate goals that relate to conversations in AVT.
