Nourishing Language Development in Early Childhood
Institutional DVD price: $ 250.00
Using vignettes filmed at an exemplary children's center, students are introduced to the vocabulary of language studies. Dr. Honig describes the development of spoken language in infancy, toddlerhood and early childhood. She details strategies caregivers should use to nourish language development during the early stages of language acquisition. The video abounds with excellent examples of adults interacting verbally with children, illustrating Dr. Honig's ardent belief in the importance of language to the intellectual, social and emotional development of young children.
"We have used the Nourishing Language Development DVD as part of our seminars on best practices for young dual language learners. Each of the three full-day interactive seminars provides practitioners with an integrated research-based approach on a particular topic related to practice with young dual language learners. The Nourishing Language Development DVD provides core knowledge about how young children develop language, which serves as the foundations for all language and literacy learning. Thank you for the development of such an accessible, teacher-friendly, and educational teaching tool!"
