Example text

As we shall discuss in several other places in this book. WHAT IS “MEDIATED SELF-TALK” (MST)? What is MST, and what it is not? There are many ways of describing and interacting with the child to enhance language development. MST presents particular qualities that are reflected in its practice, making a unique contribution to the neurophysiological development of the brain. In Chapter 3 we will discuss this in detail. MST describes the process of constructing and implementing actions that mediate language awareness, acquisition, and development.

In Chapter 6 we describe the natural occurrences in the child’s and family’s life that are rich opportunities to apply MST, and point out how the qualities of MST are often spontaneously present in adult/child interactions. The natural environment can be used systematically to provide MST. Encouragement, focus, training, and ongoing support are necessary to sustain and develop MST in such situations. ” We return to this very important source of inhibition in Chapter 6. Additionally, we believe that effective use of MST requires knowledge of the structural aspects of language development, and how to understand and employ the parameters of MLE.

This is viewed as occurring very early in life, within the first few months, as the infant observes and reacts to novel and complex stimuli. Piaget considered that this early experience laid the foundation for the later bringing of stimuli and responses into both awareness and a responsive repertoire (processes he labeled as assimilation and accommodation). It is our view that language plays a key role in this experience, as the child is being talked to, is listening to the surrounding language, and is beginning to respond.
