  1. 1. How do children learn a language?
  2. 2. My sub questions:
  3. 3. My sub questions: HOW DO CHILDREN LEARN A LANGUAGE? WHAT IS DYSLEXIA WHAT IS AUTISM, AND HOW DOES IT AND HOW DOES EFFECT KIDS IT EFFECT KIDS LEARNING? LEARNING?
  4. 4. HOW DO CHILDREN LEARN A LANGUAGE? In the early childhood silence is not golden. Almost all children (those with language disabilities set aside) are geniuses! I mean they learn a completely new language! They learn with hardly any teaching from parents. Which is probably a good thing…..look at this example: a mum sees their child looking at a dog; if she were Chinese she would say : Ni youmeiyou kandao nali de gougou? (Did you see the doggie over there?) How would they know which word dog was? Kids may be geniuses but they do make funny mistakes like; don’t giggle me!, go me to the bathroom, I love cut-upped egg or I runned in the park these mistakes make us see that kids learning Gougou a language aren’t all ‘monkey see, monkey do’ but actually make up their own words like ‘holded’ or ‘falled.
  5. 5. LANGUAGE CONT…… There is no fancy code that makes a child to speak English or Spanish or any other language, language is learned. We are born with the ability to make 40 sounds and our genetics allows our brain to make associations between sounds and objects, actions, or ideas. A mixing of these things allows language. Sounds turn to have meanings. The gurgley "ma - ma - ma" of a little baby becomes mama, and then mother! In the first years of life children listen, practice, and learn. The funny little sounds of a young kid practicing language (which sounds like meaningless chatter) is really their practicing of rhythm, tone, volume, and non-verbal expressions they see on us. Adults help children learn language the most by talking with them. Like when a mother baby-talks with her child. Like when a father listens to the fractured, rambling, breathless story of his 3-year-old. Or when a teacher patiently repeats the assignment to an daydreaming student.

  8. 8. WHAT IS AUTISM, AND HOW DOES IT EFFECT KIDS LEARNING? Autism (aw-tih-zum) causes children to experience a different world than others and makes it difficult for them to talk and express themselves with words. Autism causes some kids to act in unusual ways. Like they might flap their arms, say words over and over again, have temper tantrums or only play with one toy . Autism affects about 1 in every 150 kids. Children with Autism often find it hard to learn and make connections that others may make easily like connecting someone's smile to that they are feeling happy or words to their meanings. If some one has Autism his or her brain has trouble with a very important job; and that is making sense of the world. Every day your brain takes in everything around you sights, sounds, smells……. And interprets what is going on. If your brain cold not do this you would have trouble learning, talking ,walking, going to school and doing all the every day stuff you never think
  9. 9. AUTISM, CONT… No one knows what causes it for sure but it is thought to passed through generations. There is no cure for autism but doctors, therapists and special teacher can help kids overcome it or adjust to it. Some kids with mild autism when they grow up can live by themselves but others might need some sorts of help through out their whole lives. 1 in 150 births 1 to 1.5 million Americans Fastest-growing developmental disability 10 - 17 % annual growth $90 billion annual cost 90% of costs are in adult services Cost of lifelong care can be reduced by 2/3 with early diagnosis and intervention In 10 years, the annual cost will be $200-400 billion

  12. 12. WHAT IS DYSLEXIA, AND HOW DOES IT EFFECT KIDS LEARNING? Child with Dyslexia is a learning disability that makes it hard for children Dyslexia writing learn to write, read and spell. Although Dyslexia doesn’t affect speech as such, it may limit a child’s understanding and ability to learn new words. children with dyslexia may have problems with their short term memory, which it makes it hard for them to process and remember information. Dyslexia creates a weakness to process language based information. It usually runs in the family and it can affect anyone. It is believed that dyslexia affects at least 10 per cent of the UK.
  13. 13. Facts on Dyslexia 90 million adults have literacy skills below the Levels of Dyslexia sixth-grade level (Dept. of Labor, 1992) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 40 million have below third grade level reading Most adults show some blips and ability would be levels 1 or 2 75% of unemployed Levels 4 or 5 have difficulty in 33% of mothers receiving Aid to Families with spelling and punctuation. If they Dependent Children maintain high levels of discipline, 85% of juveniles appearing in court they can be successful. 60-75% of prison inmates Levels 6 or 7 have difficulty with 40% of minority youth spelling and reading textbooks. 45% of people in the workforce They can sometimes finish college, 11% of professional workforce but it takes tremendous effort. 30% of semi-skilled and unskilled workers Levels 8 or 9 find academic 80% having learning disabilities learning almost impossible. It takes 30 million adults usually never diagnosed 2-3 times longer to finish 15-20% of the population has a reading disability assignments. They need constant 12-15% of overall population have some form of help. Their writing is better when dyslexia done on the keyboard. They suffer Not all are diagnosed from low self-esteem because to Of students with specific learning disabilities repeated failure. who receive special education services, 70-80% have deficits in reading. Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing and spelling difficulties.
