Overview

Language Development in Early Childhood, 3e

Beverly Otto, Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago

Provides the foundation of knowledge to develop learning environments that enhance children’s language acquisition!

Language Development in Early Childhood, Third Edition, provides foundational, comprehensive coverage of language development theory, and guidelines for enhancing language development in children from birth to age 8. It not only helps readers achieve a basic understanding of the phonetic, semantic, syntactic, morphemic, and pragmatic aspects of language knowledge acquired by young children, but also offers concrete ways in which this acquisition process can be enhanced in early childhood settings. Acquisition of the knowledge of written language is also included as part of children's language development.

This edition includes the following key changes:

  • Updates the section on the role of brain maturation in language development--Provides awareness of the connections between physical, cognitive, and language development.
  • Describes the techniques used by researchers to discover the perceptual abilities of infants to distinguish speech sounds and patterns of intonation—This helps students understand the complexities of research with very young children.
  • Provides templates for observing and documenting infant and toddler language development in the assessments chapter—This shows practical ways for teachers to begin to systematically observe individual children’s language development.
Includes guidelines and strategies for interacting with English language learners at each developmental level, providing practical ways in which teachers can enhance language development among ELLs.
