Suggested Responses: Students should develop an outline to use for their presentation to infant/toddler child care providers in the area of early language and literacy development that includes the following topics: a) typical language development up to 2 years; b) signs of language development problems; c) selecting books for infants and toddlers; d) demonstrating how to read to infants and toddlers; e) creating a literacy-rich learning environment; f) how to communicate with parents about their child's early literacy needs and abilities; g) how to develop a resource list of community resources for parents and teachers to use; h) facts about bilingualism and differences in language learning across cultural and linguistic background, and suggestions for effectively and appropriately encouraging learning for children of all backgrounds; and i) what to do if language delays are suspected. Students should also provide a list of recommended books for infants and toddlers and where to purchase them or locate them for check out purposes. Books should be age-appropriate both in terms of content and the physical materials with which the book is made. Ideally, students will choose books that a) are high-quality and provide many opportunities for scaffolded learning and b) represent diverse, multicultural characters. Finally, students should develop a list of local community agencies suitable for referral for hearing assessment, examinations by pediatricians, and other interventions for language delays.
