Abstract

In this chapter, we describe three components of communication: speech, language, and literacy. We identify features of each that are unique to the Australian and New Zealand context, and outline ways in which our unique style of communication has developed over time. We also discuss the importance of communication in society, including the role that it plays in our development of other skills and participation in life activities, and the impact that communication difficulties may have on development and participation. Next, we introduce three professional groups that work in the field of communication, educators, speech pathologists and linguists, and list resources for further information about communication development and use. Finally, we describe how this book works, and introduce you to the children, adolescents, and adults who have participated in the video case studies that accompany this book.
