Social inequalities in language development opportunities exist among young children, in Canada as in most countries. Because of their expert knowledge of language development, speech-language pathologists should be involved in the discussions surrounding this important public health issue. This seminar aims to support speech-language pathologists who wish to act on these inequalities, by presenting key concepts and theories drawn from public health and health promotion, understanding how they relate to language development, and how they can guide actions and interventions conducted by speech-language pathologists to better support the language development of children in their communities.
