TITLE: Exploring the interrelations between language and other symbolic domains in development

ABSTRACT:
In this talk  I will present three studies that explore the interrelations between language and other symbolic domains. Study 1 considers the relationship between language, symbolic play, and graphic symbolism. Study 2 considers the role of symbolic play in the development of referential communication skills, and Study 3 investigates the role of gesture in language development. In each case I report interactions between language and other symbolic domains, suggesting that language development is better categorised as an interactive process that is not separate from development in other domains.
