Sample text

So if you sit down to play with a child and find that you are directing the game, setting the rules and insisting that the child ‘finishes’what she is doing, there is a risk that the activity will not seem like fun. When introducing a new activity, you need to ensure that it is enjoyable to the child. You can encourage participation, but do not insist if the child is not interested. Why is play so useful for helping children to learn to talk? In the early stages of learning to talk, children need to have some control over the situations that they are in.

They are learning that particular sounds are associated with specific objects or actions or events, such as the ‘ring ring’ of the telephone and ‘oh-oh’when something falls down. They learn that the words that they hear represent or ‘stand for’ particular referents such as ‘Daddy’, ‘ball’, ‘phone’, ‘more’, ‘gone’ and ‘fall down’ (Hollich, Hirsh-Pasek and Golinkoff, 2000). At the same time, they take the first steps in expressive language by learning that they can use actions and sounds to make things happen.

The best conditions for children to begin to explore and learn about new objects, and then use their new knowledge in creative ways, is when they are in familiar situations that they can control, where they feel safe and in the company of children and adults whom they know well. The best place to learn to talk, for most children, is in a familiar context, either home or another setting, and during activities with parents or carers who are closely involved in their daily life. summary Experience working with children who are having problems in the early stages of learning to talk has demonstrated the importance of natural environments as contexts for language acquisition.
