For professionals who work with children it is even an essential activity. Nevertheless we learn little about it in college. In Are you listening to me? Martine Delfos describes how to conduct conversations with children between four and twelve. How can we make them talk about what is on their mind? Should you talk and play at the same time? Which questioning techniques are fit for which age? How can you estimate the mental age of the child? How to enable the child to be a good witness? Are you listening to me? is a book on communicating with children between four and twelve. The most recent research has been translated in a model of communicating with children adjusted to their age. It is fit as a textbook for those who work with children of primary school age.

"This is one of the best texts on this subject to emerge in recent years ù well written, scholarly with practice accounts that draw on Michelle Lefevre's direct experience. An essential text for all practitioners who encounter children and young people in their work."-Pam Trevithick, University of Bristol "This highly readable book makes a valuable contribution to an important but undeveloped area of practice. It combines theoretical perspectives on the dynamics of communication with children with opportunities for application, reflection and evaluation of one's own practice."-Karen Tanner, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Social Work, Tavistock Clinic Direct practice with children and young people has moved to centre stage in policy and practice within Children' Services. It is now recognised that if practitioners are to make a real difference to children and young people's lives, they must be able to engage, relate to, and communicate with children and young people themselves. Written by an experienced practitioner and educator, this timely textbook equips student social workers and other practitioners wishing to update their learning with the knowledge and capabilities needed for effective practice. Key skills, such as how to form relationships, understand non-verbal communication, break bad news and communicate within family groupings, are explored within the context of professional rotes and tasks such as assessment, involving young, people in decision-making and planning, and work with children in care. The book uses a problem-based learning;approach underpinned by theoretical frameworks, research findings and the voices of children and young people. Practice vignettes encourage readers to consider how these skills can be used within a range of practice contexts, tailoring communication to children and young people's specific needs and experiences.

"The goal of the present study was to compare the conversational language skills and interactions of four children who are d/hh and who received cochlear implants (CI) prior to the age of four years with four typically hearing peers matched for age, gender, techer perceived langauge abilty and race. This exploratory, descriptive study was completed employing a quantitative design. While it is not possible to make generalizations from this study due to the limited sample size, it is interesting to note that there was no statistically significant difference for hte mean child vocalization, adult word count, or conversational turn counts between the kindergarten children using bilateral CIs and their typically hearing matched peers. The only measure for which the data indicates a statistically significant difference between the kindergarten students is for the estimated mean length of utterance for the female dyad. Overall, the results of this study indicate the two kindergarten children using CIs demonstrated language and vocabulary development commensurate with their typically hearing matched peers. It is clearly evident within the preschool dyads, that there was no statistically significant difference in either dyad for CVC or MLU. the data of this study indicates there was a statistically significant difference in AWC between the two preschool dyads. It is not possible to draw cause/effect relationships based on statistically significant differences obtained from descriptive statistics; however, a difference between the AWC of the two teachers was noted."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
