"Child Language Development: Learning to Talk Second Edition by Sandra Bochner and Jane Jones is concerned with the early stages of language acquisition and is designed for use by early childhood teachers, nursery nurses, special education teachers and others working with children experiencing difficulties in learning to talk. Procedures are described that can be used to assess a child's current skills and to plan activities to increase communicative competence. The program described is based on a developmental sequence that moves from the early skills of joint attention, turn-taking and appropriate play to the more complex skills of asking and answering questions."--BOOK JACKET.
