In this workshop, you will learn to recognize changes in prelinguistic vocalizations that indicate that hearing is actually guiding speech development-even before children say words on a regular basis. New tools for assessing spoken language development during the first two years of access to sound will be shared and family-centered strategies for very young children will be explored. Finally, phonological development and the attainment of intelligible speech will be discussed with regards to recent research, new assessment tools, and intervention techniques.
