The Master's Degree in Language Development and Communication Difficulties of Nebrija University entails an academic and study specialization regarding research in the assessment, analysis, detection and application for intervention of language development and its possible alterations. The proposal revolves around three axes: the analysis of linguistic, oral and written skills, the process of development and learning of speech, language and communication, and lastly, the examination of the latest scientific contributions, primarily from the area of neurosciences, in relation to its influence in stimulating language development and intervening in communication disorders.
This degree arises from the need to harmonize the contributions made by different fields of work (speech therapy, psychology, pedagogy, medicine, education, etc.), with the ultimate aim of offering an adequate multidimensional response, which combines the most relevant contributions observed in the area and offering a coordinated response, based on scientific knowledge, to the diversity found in the population that presents difficulties in the acquisition and correct development of speech, language and communication.
Likewise, we can say that it also emerges due to the need to promote cohesion and social inclusion of people with different profiles who will require personalized and sustained support during their learning process (OECD, 2016), which requires the collaborative work of different professionals involved in the management of attention to diversity.
The growing interest of recent years in the study of individual differences in the population also proves the interest in the program. It pays attention not only to the most vulnerable populations, but also to the differences found in the bulk of the population, situated within the plane of normality, which on many occasions needs personalized attention for the development and improvement of their language skills. From this point of view, we understand diversity as the heterogeneity or differences found in the general population regarding their intellectual capacity, interests, learning rhythms, socio-cultural differences, gender or linguistic differences. As Cecilia Rojas Nieto and Elsa Viviana Oropeza Gracia (2018) point out, we are going to find individual differences from the early development of vocabulary to the use of the most complex linguistic skills.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proposes different lines of action to promote respect for the use of the mother language in teaching and learning, and the promotion and preservation of linguistic diversity; therefore, in 2016 International Mother Language Day focused on the relationship of the language of instruction with quality education and learning outcomes. In this sense, the Association for the Teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language (ASELE) also points out the need to renew the methods of teaching Spanish as a mother language, to adapt them to the characteristics of society, as pointed out by Espinosa Ochoa and Orozco Arreola (2018), to which we can add the impoverishment of the use of the language, which was denounced by the Association of Spanish Language Academies (ASALE).Read less
