Synopsis

"Children Communicating: The First 5 Years is the first volume to integrate diverse bodies of research, enabling readers to garner further insights into the development of human communication.

Key principles and practices for parents or adults interested in child development are derived from a variety of fields including developmental and social psychology, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and communication. Useful to students and scholars alike, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the various components of human communicative development and its significance for the child's cognitive and emotional growth."
