Event description

Description

Many new entrant teachers in Christchurch are concerned about the poor oral language some children now have on school entry. In this seminar, I outline research which suggests the solution lies in improving the back-and-forth communication children experience in the first 3 years of their lives.

Come and learn about why oral language in the early preschool years matters; quality teaching strategies to boost oral language development in preschoolers; and how you can develop your practice as an early childhood teacher in this area.

I am an experienced speech language therapist and researcher / lecturer at the University of Canterbury in child language development and disorders (and a mother of a 3 year old!). I enjoy translating key research findings into simple practical changes people can make in their everyday interactions with children.

This seminar is tailored for early childhood teachers (qualified or unqualified) and assumes professional level knowledge and experience working with young children. This talk will be in the style of seminar, with opportunities for everyone to participate and to ask and answer questions.

All funds raised go towards the University of Canterbury's Child Language Research Group to fund research projects aiming to support children with language difficulties.
