Language Development In Deaf Children Language Development In Deaf Children Presentation Transcript

  • LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT IN A DEAF CHILD
  • HOW LANGUAGE DEVELOPS
    • Language is developed in two ways:
    • Language acquisition
    • Language learning
    • Language development in a normal environment with any language accessible to the child is identical.
    • All languages are equal in this regard.
    • Critical period.
    • Learning is the key activity between ages 0-5.
    • 80% of our total knowledge is learned during the first five years.The largest part of this is language development in the brain.
    • THIS IS CALLED COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
    • Some Characteristics Of 5 Year Olds Who Have Normal Language Development .
    • Self image is strong.
    • Know who they are and can identify family members by relationship words. 
    • Have a command over 1500- 2000 words in their home language.  
    • Use full sentences. 
    • Use grammatically correct language. 
    • Refer to past and future events, places and persons not present etc.
    • When language is accessible the child’s development is normal.
    • Hearing child of hearing parents
    • Deaf child of deaf parents
    • Deaf child of hearing parents
    3 Family Examples
  • FIRST TWO FAMILIES
    • Accessible language
    • Full integration into family
    • Full participation in family Activities
    • Clear communication both expressive and receptive
  • Deaf child of hearing parents
    • Language inaccessible
    • Family activities are not accessible and comprehensible
    • Communication is a serious problem as the child’s need for it grows faster than his skills do.
    • Majority language
    • Minority language
  • Hearing child of Deaf parents
    • Development is identical to the deaf child of deaf parents
    • Accessible language
    • Full integration into family
    • Full participation in family Activities
    • Strong bonding
    • Clear communication both expressive and receptive
    • Majority language is developed automatically as the environment provides ample auditory input through extended family, TV, neighbours, pre-school etc.
    • For years people have equated language with speech.
    • This is not correct.
    • Speech is one way to express language
    • Other ways are….
    • Writing
    • Reading
    • Braille for the blind
    • Sign language for the deaf
    • We cannot confuse the media whereby we convey meaning with the meaning itself.
    • A language written in a script not its own is not a foreign language.
    • Hum sab milkar
    • ghoomne ja rahe hain!
  • Language is a brain function.
    • SIGN LANGUAGE STIMULATES THE BRAIN IN THE SAME WAY THAT A SPOKEN LANGUAGE DOES.
  • COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO COMPREHENSIBLE INPUTS IN AN ACCESSIBLE LANGUAGE
