Child language as a life chances indicator - LuCiD Seminar
Although language development is often construed as being “within” the child in the sense that we assess an individual child’s language and we provide “therapy” to the individual, it is clear that oral language, like literacy is also a societal phenomenon. In this session, I will describe the provenance of what has come to be known as the “Life Chances agenda” and how child language development might fit into it drawing on data from a number of different large scale population studies. I will then highlight a number of different developments from the UK’s What Works Centres and what this might mean in terms of intervention and service development. The term “Life Chances” has been superseded in the political narrative over last few months by “social mobility” and “opportunity” but it remains a useful way of approaching early child development.”

How do we provide healthcare for populations affected by humanitarian emergencies?

Drawing on examples from post‐conflict in northern Sri Lanka, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the West Africa Ebola outbreak and the recent Nepal earthquake, Dr Hughes explores the complexities, challenges and approaches to delivering health care during and in the aftermath of such events. This lecture provides an insight into the world of health care in humanitarian emergencies, highlighting the multiple factors affecting this.
