Parents brought their children to campus as part of an early intervention course taught by Dr. Nina Capone Singleton, CCC-SLP, Associate Professor of Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) in the School of Health and Medical Sciences.
During the workshop, SLP graduate students observed children for typical developmental milestones, observed interactions between children and their caregivers, and observed interactions among the children.
"I want our students to understand that developments can vary widely, and that variants in typical development do not make a child disordered or delayed," says Dr. Capone, who is also Director of the Developmental Language and Cognition Laboratory in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology. "Speech-language clinicians need to take into account individual, cultural and linguistic variations when assessing speech, language and communication functioning."
