What is unique to the human species is the capacity for communication…does communication begin when a child learns to use words? If communication is unique to the human species, what is it like when someone struggles to communicate? Our collective thinking began with the shared observation of how communication and language remain somewhat of a mystery both within and outside our field. As children age, particularly neurodiverse children and/or families with histories of social-emotional struggles, supporting communication and language development becomes more complex across settings, especially in the home and school environments. This course will weave DIR® into the field of communication and language development while touching on the major themes presently felt within our field: Change, Growing Awareness, and New Directions
