Emerging Language for Infants and Toddlers Benjamin Rackliffe

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children (VTAEYC)
Instructor: Scott Noyes

An infant's brain is ingeniously structured for language. When an infant is three months old, their brain can distinguish several hundred different spoken sounds. Over the next several months, their brain will organize itself more efficiently so that it only recognizes those sounds that are part of the language they regularly hear. This inspiring presentation investigates brain development, Baby Signs, best ways to talk with young children, as well as discussions on Restrictive vs. Responsive Language and Open-Ended Questions. Wondering how young children learn language is the center of the exciting session.
