HOW DO WE REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO LANGUAGE OUTCOMES? WHY PARENTS NEED SLT'S TO ACT MORE HUMAN, NOT JUST MORE EXPERT.

Lyndsey Allen

As SLT’s we know parents make the difference. You’ll work with families who have the resources to make a difference, and you’ll work with ones who don’t. There’s a strong relationship between economic status and disparity in all childhood outcomes, these differences start early, and they last a lifetime (Halle et al, 2009). To improve language outcomes, we told parents to TALK TALK TALK with their child, as the number of words children hear is associated with language outcomes (Hart & Risley, 2003) but now we know more important is the number of conversational turns (Romeo et al. 2018).

The question I kept asking in my head was WHY. WHY do some parents talk to their children more than others? WHY do parents explain things to children in different ways? Join me for the answer to that question, and let’s explore together how acting more human (not just more expert) could really make a difference to your work with parents and to language outcomes.
