Is it ever OK methodology of development of motor skills in children lie in a job interview? So you want to be a teacher? This section looks at how children learn at different stages of development and how activities in the classroom need to address their cognitive, motor, language and social development.
Children between four and twelve years old are very different as language learners, so here we take a look at how children learn at different stages of development and how activities in the classroom need to address their cognitive, motor, language and social development. Obviously children do not all fit neatly into categories and their development will depend on their personality, maturity and previous learning experiences. You will no doubt recognise how your own students fit the descriptions. Access our entire database of over 9,000 high-quality resources.

English World A visually stunning ten-level course which will take children through from Primary to Secondary. Onestopenglish is a teacher resource site, part of Macmillan Education, one of the world’s leading publishers of English language teaching materials. Recently I’ve heard of mothers who are telling other mothers that they’d better be doing oral motor exercises at home with their kids and find SLPs who will do these with their kids to help their toddlers learn to speak more clearly. I wanted to let you all in on apparently what some SLPs aren’t telling you. There’s a whole lot of research in the past few years that tell us that oral motor exercises DON’T work to help children learn to speak more clearly. In his ASHA presentation in November 2006, Dr. Logic, Theory and Evidence Against the Use of Non-Speech Oral Motor Exercises to Change Speech Sound Productions.
SLPs tell you to do including blowing, tongue push ups, pucker-smile, tongue wags, big smile, tongue to nose to chin, cheek puffing, blowing kisses, and tongue curling. DOES NOT INVOLVE him making a speech sound is not going to help him learn to talk. This means that all the blowing, sucking, tongue exercises, and lip games you’ve been doing will not do one bit of good when it comes to helping him produce clearer speech. Now I can’t say that I’m an SLP who has over-relied on this kind of stuff. I’m a talker, and I push functional communication whether it be with signs or words in play practically every minute of the time I provide direct treatment to a child. Johnny will perform 10-15 repetitions of oral motor exercises to improve strength and coordination for intelligible speech. I know lots of SLPs who do and who base their whole treatment plan around these kinds of goals and strategies for non-verbal children and for children who are struggling with speech intelligibility.
