Natural Language Acquisition
NATURAL LANGUAGE ACQUISITION (FOR GESTALT LANGUAGE PROCESSORS)
Does your child communicate using delayed echolalia (scripting)? Do they repeat questions, books, and movies, but have a hard time generating spontaneous language? Your child might be a gestalt language processor. Gestalt language processors process language in chunks rather than one word at a time. The Natural Language Acquisition approach is used to guide us in helping a child move from echolalia to self-generated (original, flexible) language.
