The four models of language development, Bloom and Lahey, Bloom and Tinker, Social Pragmatics, and DIR are used to develop assessment and intervention processes for working with young children with delays and differences in the development of language. The goals and strategies of language intervention in the developmental model are based on typical development, adjusted for each child’s learning style. The developmental therapist is committed to using the child’s spontaneous, self-initiated actions as the basis of learning. Watch how the developmental model informs Dr. Gerber as she begins to assess 2 year old Emma.
