There are many benefits of doing therapy outdoors. Outdoor activities are fun for kids but the benefits are much more than just enjoyment.
Kids love Lego and it is on lots of Christmas wish lists. 400 billion bricks have been made since 1958 and there are 62 bricks for every person in the world. Currently 36 billion bricks are made each year or 1140 bricks per second. That's a lot of Lego, so what can we do with it all?
Parents often ask what are good ideas for things to get their child for Christmas to help their learning and development. Including some books in your child’s Christmas stocking gives them a lasting gift which is valuable for so many reasons.
School holidays are not far away and Christmas is on the way. Talking Matters would like to share some Christmas activities that your family can enjoy together. These activities are fun but are also a way to help your kids learn valuable language, motor and communication skills.
Talking Matters also offers workshops and professional development sessions to assist educators and families in developing their skills in assisting children. Sessions are planned and run at the Talking Matters office during the year. Training sessions and workshops are also possible at your site so please contact us if you would like to discuss this option.
