Communication and oral language development

In this module we dive into the child communication and language development. We highlight the significance of social and communication skills for children’s overall development. The module provides a scientifically orientated, and theoretical understanding of communication, speech and language acquisition that will help students understand how children develop and refine speech and language skills during the early years. By providing this knowledge, students will have a better understanding of children with atypical patterns of development.
