Speaker: Meghan Swanson, PhD, UT Dallas assistant professor
Title: Talking to Babies: The Universal Ingredient for Language Learning
During the first three years of life children go from babblings to saying hundreds of words. Babies complete this developmental feat with the help of their parents who provide them with their primary learning environment. Dr. Swanson will discuss the universal role that parents play in helping infants learn language. Her talk will explore the unique challenges facing children from diverse backgrounds, and how they can all be supported by responsive and developmentally appropriate caregiver speech.
