Prior to being able to understand or speak, a child must develop fundamental skills that serve as the foundation and interact with overall development. Therefore, prelinguistic skills hold significant importance in the practice of Speech and Language Therapists.
The success and effectiveness of interventions greatly rely on the expertise that Speech and Language Therapists possess in addressing these specific and complex skills such as attachment, joint attention, intention reading, and communicative gestures. Furthermore, the challenge intensifies as these skills need to be assessed and intervened while engaging the family.
In this course, Speech Language Therapists will have the opportunity to delve into the various aspects of each of these skills, which are highly interconnected with clinical practice.
