Let’s Talk About….Gestalt Language Processing

Gestalt Language Processing is a relatively new phenomenon in social media. However, although the theory has gathered more traction in the last few years, Gestalt language processing is not new. In this interactive session, we look further into the research that is available in order to feel more secure in developing support for children that may be presenting with scripts, delayed echolalia and/or gestalts.


Definitions: Have a shared understanding of what we mean by Gestalt language processing.

Fact V’s Opinion: Share experience of what we have learned from social media. How does this compare to the evidence and research?

Compare and Contrast: There are two main theories regarding how children acquire language — analytic language development and gestalt language development. Understand the difference and how it impacts on hoe children learn language.

Applications at Home and at School: How does what we know impact on how children may present at home and school?

What should we Expect?: What could be the knock on impacts on other aspects of development?

Support: Delve into the tools and ideas that are already available and discuss how these might work for children

N.B: each of sessions comes with an advice sheet to share with professionals and family.
