Patient Handouts (Strategies for Language Development in Children)

The Paediatric Special Interest Group for Speech Therapists in Vietnam created these patient handouts that include strategies to facilitate language development in children.

They intended them to be given to families of children with language delay or disorder in coordination with needs-based assessment and intervention specific to the needs of the child.

Not all strategies may be relevant for every child with language delay/disorder. (These are in Vietnamese only).
