摘要:"Purpose: The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and the UNICEF/WHO Nurturing Care Framework for supporting children's health and development present unique international opportunities for speech-language pathologists to contribute support to early childhood development and Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG 4 and SDG 17) in diverse international contexts. The crucial role that parent/caregiver support plays in promoting Nurturing Care and sustainable education is often underappreciated, so the objective of this paper is to describe key concepts and importance of parent/caregiver support in the Nurturing Care Framework and the SDGs. This commentary focusses on SDG 4, which is foundational to individuals, communities and societies in creating an education framework that includes and harnesses family and community support. This paper also includes as an example a comprehensive program that has been developed and implemented in the People's Republic of China that includes speech and language skills as an explicit component. Result: The results in China indicate that a program of universal developmental facilitators can be implemented within an educational and paediatrician/developmental paediatrician centred health care context. Conclusion: Sustainable Development Goal 4 and UNICEF/WHO Nurturing Care Framework are important and innovative programs that explicitly harness parent education and training to identify and address the needs of children with developmental difficulties utilising paediatricians, speech language pathologists, allied health personnel, teachers, and community stakeholders proactively for implementation. The program's adoption and success in the China suggest that it provides a model which can be adapted internationally within the context of national health programs."
