Are you a busy parent who is constantly on the go? Do you find it hard to find time to sit down and work on speech and language with your child? You can practice speech and language goals from the moment your child wake up until they go to bed. They won’t even notice that they are learning while doing all their daily activities.
Recounts are great for developing oral and written language abilities. Holidays offer a great opportunity to practice development of recount skills. Help practice and develop your child's language and literacy skills by making use of the fun things you do as a family in the holidays!
Talking with your children is important for language and learning, but also to support social and emotional development as well. This growth can be developed through parent/teacher/peer modelling and through building friendships.
Sharing books together has been shown time and time again to be one of the most beneficial ways to help your child develop literacy skills. You, as a parent, are the most important influence on your child’s learning, and there are so many things families can do at home to help children be successful with literacy.
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.
