7. How Language Impacts Behaviour, Literacy, Learning and Mental Health (in Children and Adults)

If you are a human, you have language skills, and they could potentially be having a pretty big impact on your life. In episode 7 Speech Pathologist Heidi Begg talks about what language is. Why language skills play such an important role in literacy, learning, behaviour and mental health. Also, it’s important to know when listening to this episode that language skills don’t just affect kids. You absolutely cannot grow out of having language difficulties. If you know a child with language difficulties, they will become an adult with language difficulties. These difficulties morph and manifest as we get older and learn better coping and compensatory strategies. Whilst these strategies are good, they are not a great long term solution to the problem. I am SO EXCITED that today’s episode is brought to you all by our new Smarty Pants Challenge! This is a series of video challenges, created by Spot speech pathologists, for kids.
