Speech and Language delays are the #1 reason for parents to refer to Early Intervention Therapies. Daily routines in child care are full of natural opportunities for educators to facilitate conversations, build vocabulary, model speech sounds, and practice social communication with children. Communication skills impact children’s ability to make friends, problem solve, enter play and impacts their self-regulation when they are unable to communicate their needs. Learn how to use those moments and read children’s cues to facilitate language development.
Suitable for parents and all early learning and child care professionals.
