and peers), emotion knowledge, and language development. There is often a reciprocal relationship cited between social competence and language skill. Therefore, relationship difficulties, hyperactivity, and emotional and conduct problems .. Association between social behavior and language development was.

The Impact of Speech on Social and Emotional Development
Further, approximately half of preschool- and school-aged children referred to mental-health services or placed in special classes have language impairments or language-related learning disabilities. In infants, problems with emotion and behaviour regulation e.
The question still remains as to whether there is something specific about language as a focus for study. On the one hand, language may be just one of a range of developmental functions caused by a common underlying factor.
Communication begins in the very first days of life. Potential problems that begin in relationships with parents can ultimately spiral as children enter school and have difficulty learning and getting along with teachers and peers. Even mild language impairments can have an impact on the course of development.
Outcomes are worsened by the presence of co-occurring environmental stresses. Because language competence is critical for both school readiness and psychosocial and emotional adjustment, problems with language and communication can set a child on a maladaptive trajectory throughout life.
Implications for Policy and Services Starting from infancy, routine assessment of language and communication skills and provision of interventions are essential preventive undertakings.
This is important because interventions during infancy or the preschool years can have a significant impact on child outcomes. There has been a move away from one-to-one clinic-based therapy to a focus on functional language in naturalistic environments.
Predictive Relationships between Language and Social, Emotional and Mental Health

Reading, storytelling, sitting next to the child to watch television is not sufficient; interaction quality is needed for the acquisition of language skills and, consequently, for appropriate language development.
Five studies were found in the theme of language and family and school environments 18202329 The teachers were prepared in groups by a support team.
These professionals supported and potentialized, in daily routines, the quality of interactions between parents and children and learning experiences.
Language and social-emotional and behavioural wellbeing from 4 to 7 years: a community-based study
The purpose was to create shared responsibility between parents and teachers to foster the school readiness of children with respect to spoken language, reading, and writing.
In addition, the study shows that higher level of parental education, greater number of people cohabiting with the child, and fewer health problems of parents favor the development of language. Thus the results of that study provide evidence that the interaction between school and family environments can enhance language development Two articles 2329 emphasize the lexical development of children in relation to receptive vocabulary.
The first study 23 reveals that socioeconomic status and parental engagement are associated with the expansion of children's vocabulary. The second research 29 shows no statistical significance in the analysis of the association between development of receptive vocabulary and the variables gender, mother's education, and mothers who work outside the home. The only qualitative study found in this literature review 20 aimed to characterize the communicative behaviors of children whose entry in preschool occurred after the age of five.
The observation of these behaviors occurred both in the school and home environments. The authors used a protocol with categorization of the means and functions of communication. Thus they considered the means of verbal or gestural communication and the levels of dialogue, which were divided into: As for the analysis of communicative functions, the following categories were specified: This study found evidence that children who were enrolled in early childhood education after the age of five respond more often than initiate a conversation, and they benefit from contexts planned with family interlocutors.Interacting with infants is important for their language and social-emotional development.
It was not possible to generalize the results due to the small sample size, and the authors concluded that communicative functions showed greater variety in the home environment Still in the theme language and family and school environments, three studies addressed the importance of language skills for school readiness 1823 Only one study showed correlation between the school environment and language development Three publications were selected in the theme language, family and school environments, and social behavior 2124 However, there are also children whose speech might appear less advanced than that of their peers, but they seem unbothered and confident.
How do speech and language challenges affect academic progress? Speech or some forms of linguistic expression are important for academic success; this is because, reading, writing and verbal apprehensions are essential elements of the entire learning process.
When a child begins school they start to observe their surroundings and socialize predominantly with kids their own age.
At this point they begin to notice a difference in their own speech compared to their classmates. For children with speech issues, it may seem majority of their peers have the ability to express themselves in a more articulate, more easily understood fashion.
This realization of sounding different can have an emotional effect, ultimately leading to lower confidence, potentially causing lower class performance. However, for some of the more self- conscious kids, rejection and teasing by peers may cause all energy to be expended on dealing with the social aspect of functioning and little energy is left to be put toward academic growth.
