We use the Language ENvironment Analysis System (LENA) and qualitative interviews to examine Vietnam as an example of how language socialization practices impact parent-child communication so that more culturally appropriate intervention techniques can be developed. Findings will highlight cultural considerations when importing western treatment methods to the developing world.

This session is rated "Intermediate" which assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.
