MetadataShow full item record
Objective: To investigate parents’ perceptions and knowledge regarding the early development of communication skills. Design: Mixed, qualitative and quantitative study, using questionnaires to gather data. Results: Parents know more about the early physical development of children than they know about early communication development. Experience of parenting i.e. having more than one child does not act to inform parents of the ages and stages of early communication development. Parents would welcome information about the ages and stages of both physical and communication development such as The Physical and Communication Development Timeline. Conclusion: There is a difference between parental knowledge of early physical development and that of early communication development. An initiative such as The Physical and Communication Development Timeline (developed for the present study) would be welcomed by parents.
