I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

In chapter 6 of your textbook we learn about language development during the first two years.

  • According to the nativist perspective, infants are born with special language systems which enable them to easily acquire language, through a language acquisition device (LAD). Studies of the Wild Boy of Aveyron support the idea that we must learn language during a critical period of our development. Learning theorists, however, believe that children learn language from the stimuli they are exposed to in their environment.
  • Conduct your own research on these 2 perspectives. After reflecting on your research and your own observations, in a 1-2 page paper, discuss your thoughts. Which theory do you find more credible? Explain your opinion using examples and findings from your research.
