In this course students undertake further studies in child language, to develop evidence-based practice skills with school aged children with language support needs. Topics include language and literacy development in the school aged years, the assessment and support of children’s learning across pragmatics, narrative, morph-syntax, semantics and reading, inclusion and service delivery. Students learn to interpret and critically apply research to realistic case scenarios from the local context. We explore working across cultures and languages in Aotearoa, with a focus on Maori and Pacific students, including those in kura Kaupapa Maori education. The course explores different perspectives on child language “disorders” and supports students to develop flexibility and sensitivity in their practice with diverse families.
