2.1 Explain the ways in which adults can effectively support and extend the speech, language and communication development of children during the early years
Interacting with and providing stimulating environments for young children helps to put in place the building blocks for their growth and development. [ Communication is crucial to speech and language development, as is early reading to children and encouraging their engagement with books and reading. Before formal education can begin, children must learn to: * play * talk *
listen * understand, and * attend Children benefit from opportunities to develop their early communication skills in the home, nursery and play environments in relation to their social skills, development of play, comprehension and expressive language skills. Resources such as the Play, Talk, Read website and the play@home programme are useful tools for supporting parents to interact and communicate with their child and increase an awareness of developmental milestones and skills. Early Years staff can help to promote early language skills by: * being aware of the need to simplify the language they use in terms of vocabulary, sentence length and complexity, when compared to speaking to older children and adults * making use of symbols and gestures to support language comprehension whenever appropriate * supporting children’s attention and listening skills * providing opportunities to develop an awareness of rhyme, rhythm and word patterns * making use of comments to prompt use of language rather than overusing questions * providing opportunities for small groups using resources provided by their local speech and language therapy department * providing sufficient response time for children within play and interaction. Play and activity encourages children to communicate and thus to practice and develop their language and communication skills. [ They will need to communicate with their playmates and others, so that creates a situation where they can practice and develop their language skills. In the end, it is practice that allows for the development of language skills and activity is a good way to encourage that practice. ] ]

Use language that is age and stage appropriate.

Listen and give them the time they need to answer - if they need or want to.

Make sure (especially with younger/smaller children) that you look at them/they look at you - get down on their level, speak at a pace/use the language they understand - telegraphic if they are very young i.e. it's no good saying to a child under two 'Matilda, I want you to go inside now, because it's getting cold and it will soon be snack time' - too much to take in, so you could use (in a nice intonation) 'Matilda, please go inside'.

When playing or talking to children don't keep asking them questions - often resulting in yes/no/nods, comment on what is happening/what you/they are doing/playing with etc - commenting from your side is broadening the language they are hearing, encourage them to chat and play, giving them plenty of time to talk, let them finish what they have to say.


Help to expand children's speech and language when reading stories when using say a new word (to young children) such as 'ogre' use the word but add '...that means a nasty giant' every time you come across it say ogre (that nasty giant) or words such as ridiculous '...that means How silly' and use hand gestures/body language to get it across. Children soon learn what these new words mean and may use them at a later date.

To encourage the children to use and expand their language provide tape recorders and/or microphones/karaoke machines for them to use.

Give children ample opportunity to practise mark making and provide pads/pencils/boards etc in all role play areas i.e. shop/garage/hair salon etc for them to use writing as a form of communication.

Singing and dancing, songs, rhymes, poems etc

I keep getting numbness in my left foot if i sit down for too long. what could this be?
Weegy: Numbness in the foot is a loss of sensation in the foot, as a result of improper communication between the nerves and the central nervous system. [ Temporary causes of numbness in the foot, such as a blood shortage from sitting cross- legged, are harmless. Artificial causes, such as anesthesia or other medications should be monitored, but are usually harmless. Neurological disorders, nerve damage or diseases such as Lyme disease and Diabetic Neuropathy are more serious causes of numbness in the foot. A psychological disorder may also be the cause. A visit to a physician should help to determine the cause and treatment of numbness in the foot.

hello
Weegy: hi hw can I help you? User: 4.1 Explain the importance of the environment in supporting speech, language and communication development. What is the answer? Weegy: he first signs of communication occur when an infant learns that a cry will bring food, comfort, and companionship. Newborns also begin to recognize important sounds in their environment, such as the voice of their mother or primary caretaker. [ As they grow, babies begin to sort out the speech sounds that compose the words of their language. By 6 months of age, most babies recognize the basic sounds of their native language. Children vary in their development of speech and language skills. However, they follow a natural progression or timetable for mastering the skills of language. A checklist of milestones for the normal development of speech and language skills in children from birth to 5 years of age is included on the following pages. These milestones help doctors and other health professionals determine if a child is on track or if he or she may need extra help. Sometimes a delay may be caused by hearing loss, while other times it may be due to a speech or language disorder. ] (More)
