In the field of child language, we continually strive to further our knowledge of the processes involved in typical and atypical language development. We also are concerned with the ways in which acquisition of various components of language influences a child’s skill acquisition in other areas of functioning. This perspective is evident throughout the child language literature, from the literature on the interrelationship of early motor, sensorimotor, cognitive, social interactive, and prelinguistic skills, to the literature on the interrelationship of language and various academic skills, such as literacy skills. This perspective also is reflected in the articles that the authors contributed to this newsletter. Each researcher/clinician has focused on the interrelationship of phonological awareness and reading development and/or disabilities.
