More Than Baby Talk

University of North Carolina’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute has just published “More Than Baby Talk,” an easily-readable and free online guide to igniting the communication and language skills of infants and toddlers. This guide includes ten research-based recommendations for educators and parents: http://mtbt.fpg.unc.edu/

“More Than Baby Talk” recommends one-on-one and small-group interactions that are tried and tested to support the development of language and communication in infants and toddlers from a variety of backgrounds. Among the FPG team’s recommended interactions are responding to children’s vocalizations and speech, eliciting conversations, and using complex grammar and a rich vocabulary. Each practice includes the science that supports it and examples of how to use it.
