"Social Challenges of Children with Impaired Language" is lecture topic Oct. 6

Bonnie Brinton, Brigham Young University dean of Graduate Studies, will speak Thursday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m., in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium for a House of Learning Lecture.

The academic and general community are invited to attend.

Brinton, who is also a professor of audiology and speech language pathology, will focus her presentation on children and speech in her lecture, “Life on a Tricycle: The Social Challenges of Children with Impaired Language.”

“Children with language impairment suffer difficulties learning to talk and understanding spoken language though they may have normal hearing and intellectual capacity,” Brinton said. “As a result, these children have trouble performing academic tasks, particularly reading and writing.”

She said research shows that many children with language impairment also experience social problems such as withdrawn behavior, poor peer interaction and difficulty forming and maintaining relationships.

“It is vital to understand the aspects of emotional competence that may influence social outcomes in children with language impairment in order to plan intervention programs that will help these children navigate their social world,” she said.

The House of Learning Lecture Series is sponsored by the Lee Library and features lectures on a variety of topics by campus faculty members during the semester. For more information, contact Brian Champion at 801-422-5862 or brian_champion@byu.edu.
