The Intentionality Model builds on the child's engagement in a world
of persons and objects, the effort that learning language requires,
and the essential tension between engagement and effort that propels
language acquisition. According to this perspective, children learn
language in acts of expression and interpretation; they work at
acquiring language; all aspects of a child's development contribute to
this process.
