Investigating the Feasibility of a Sequential Language Strategy for Early Word Learning.
What is this project about?
This project focuses on evaluating how quickly and accurately parents of young toddlers can learn a language strategy called the See and Say Sequence. The See and Say Sequence combines features of responsivity with specific linguistic targets to support early word learning during parent-child interactions. We will measure the change in parents’ language in play samples conducted before and after learning this strategy.
