By: , 2/17/2014, 0 views 25s duration

Dr. Sima Gerber introduces four models of language and development that are central to assessment and intervention. The models are from Bloom and Lahey; Bloom and Tinker; Social Pragmatics; and Greenspan and Wieder.
 

2. Model One: Bloom and Lahey- Form Use and Content Model

Dr. Gerber briefly describes the work of Lois Bloom and Peg Lahey. Their work gives us a model for assessment that leads directly to intervention. The intersection of Form, Use and Content gives us a cohesive map for thinking about language from the precursors of language to linguistic complexity.
 

3. Model Two: Bloom and Tinker Intentionality Model

Bloom and Tinker describe language acquisition within the larger context of other developmental domains such as cognitive, affective and social growth. This model is especially helpful for thinking about children whose language challenges go beyond the form of language.
 

4. Model Three: Social Pragmatic Model

Social Pragmatic models build on the work of Bloom, Lahey and Tinker. This model emphasizes the importance of non-linguistic communication, natural contexts for communication, reciprocity, and the role of the care -giver in the acquisition of language.
 

5. Model Four: The Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based DIR Model

By: Sima Gerber, Ph.D. C.C.C., 2/17/2014, 0 views 1m 1s duration

The DIR Model focuses on the child’s social and emotional capacities while addressing the child’s individual processing and biological differences. This model emphasizes the role of the child in the learning process and the role of the adult in facilitating the process.
