The purpose of this chapter is twofold. First, it outlines an approach to the development of expressive and communicative behavior of typically developing hearing infants until the onset of single-word utterances. It argues that expressive and communicative actions are organized as a complex and cooperative system with other elements of the infant's physiology, behavior and the social environment. Second, it discusses implications of the findings for deaf and hard-of-hearing infants. By integrating the deafness-related issues, the chapter provides a source of information to chart directions for future research about spoken language development in deaf and hard-of-hearing children.
