Supporting Language Development in the Preschool Classroom (ages 2 - 5 Years)

This workshop is based on the premise that with increased opportunities to practice language in the classroom, young children will become more efficient communicators. Participants will be provided with a variety of classroom techniques that will engage children with a wide range of language abilities and will help them to listen, learn, and communicate most effectively. You will learn to analyze teacher communication styles and how to best match them to the language learning styles of your students. Using a timeline for development as a foundation, we will review the course of typical language acquisition and contrast it with language delay, differences, and disorders. We will use multisensory materials to practice how to incorporate language stimulation techniques into daily lessons in order to seize all interactions as language learning opportunities.
