Section Description

The Development of Spoken Language is offered as a lecture-based prerequisite course for students applying to a graduate program in communication science and disorders, and as a course within UVM’s Speech Language Pathology Assistants program. With the focus on the nature of communication development from infancy through school years, students will learn about the developmental progression of phonology, syntax, semantics, morphology and pragmatics, and the overall connections with developing cognition. Various theoretical perspectives on communication development, and the connections between speech, language and literacy development will be studied. The importance of family and relationships in children, and children’s individual differences in acquiring communication, including cultural and linguistic aspects of first and second language acquisition will be examined.
