Do you know what is one of the strongest predictors of a child’s future academic success? LANGUAGE SKILLS. Did you know that the language skills established by the age of THREE YEARS set the tone for a lifetime of learning ability? And even more importantly, did you know that there is a direct correlation between PARENT INVOLVEMENT and the complexity of a child's language development?
A class specifically designed for toddlers, 1-3 years old! 40 minutes of structured play and brain building activities followed by 20 minutes of rompin' and stompin' free play! Free play will rotate weekly between gross/fine motor, sensory play, art, and pretend play. Each class will consist of a maximum of 8 children, their caregiver, and a pediatric licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. You will learn strategies to help your child enhance their thinking, reasoning, auditory, social, listening comprehension, and expressive communication skills.
The class will target developmental skills including:
Speech sound/word/phrase expansion
Listening and spoken vocabulary expansion
Social language development
Caregiver Participation Expectations: A parent/caregiver is required to remain with their child throughout the class.
Minimum Requirements to Participate: Children will benefit the most from this class when they are able to sit in the laps of, or next to, their parent for 2-5 minutes at a time.
Class Minimum/Maximum Participants: 4/8
