Learn strategies and skills to enrich your child’s development.
A certified and licensed speech and language pathologist will lead you and your child through a 45-minute class to increase speech and language development. Learn speech and language strategies and skills to enrich your toddler’s development in the Toddler Talkers class. Caregivers will learn and engage in strategies, songs, signs, and books to boost language and speech so your children hit their mile-stones on-time, continue learning more vocabulary words, and start stringing 2 or more words together at a time. Each class includes vocabulary development, a strategy, baby sign language, books appropriate to age, speech and language development around a functional daily routine, movement, and a sensory component.
We Thinkers: Developing Social Skills
Between the ages of 3 and 5, a transformation occurs where children go from engaging in solitary/parallel play into more cooperative play. However, there are some students who need extra support to make that leap. In this class, students will begin to develop the skills to be flexible social thinkers and social problem solvers.
Taught by a certified school psychologist, this class follows the We Thinkers! Series, a Social Thinking curriculum for preschool and early elementary students (http://www.socialthinking.com). Play is the learning environment of young children, and the curriculum uses play to teach social competencies in fun, engaging ways! They will also learn about their own thinking (and that of others) to help them make better decisions when in the midst of social play and interaction. Class size will be limited, as the small group setting is important when learning and practicing these all-important concepts.
We offer you access to a compassionate team of teaching artists; a bright community of families to form lifelong friendships with, and overall piece of mind that the experiences enjoyed with us invaluably contribute to your child’s growth, happiness and confidence.
