Speaker: Debbie Drennan, MSW
This Zoom webinar is offered for FIRST 5 Partners and other local professionals such as Social Workers, Home Visitors, Childcare and Preschool providers, Family Resource Center staff, and Therapeutic Service Providers. Parents are also welcome.
How can you encourage language and literacy, when a child has a disability that impacts talking, or the ability to focus on books? Join Debbie Drennan for this presentation on the impact of early literacy on child development as she explores: typical language development, and strategies and tools you can use to encourage communication and understanding for all children. She will also cover the six early literacy skills and the strategies and adaptations you can use to help develop these pre-reading and writing skills. Participants will walk away with knowledge of ways to adapt books and materials to make story-time and play a much more engaging experience for all children, and to encourage both language development and early literacy skills.
