Global Perspectives: Can Early Language Contribute to Mental Health in Singapore and the United Kingdom?
August 3 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree – $5
Drawing from experiences in the clinic and ongoing cohort studies of children as they grow up in Singapore and UK, 4 local and international researchers will be asking – can early language contribute to the development of mental health among preschool and primary school children?
Perhaps as a speech and language therapist, a psychologist, a teacher, or as a researcher you have observed how language and mental health come together among Singaporean children? Some researchers estimate that up to 2 children per classroom have language which reach a level of a disorder – and thus may be at risk of social, behavioural or emotional problems.
