The Child’s Language Journey: From Reception, to Production, to Communication – with Lucy Crichton
Language is crucial to a young child’s development, for communicating, for building relationships and for making sense of the world. As Loris Malaguzzi said, “There are infinite ways that children can express, explore and connect their thoughts, feelings and imaginings.”
In this webinar, we’ll follow this beautiful journey, and look at ways we can help and support children in acquiring a rich and diverse language skill set. By using age appropriate input and careful scaffolding, we can strengthen children’s spoken output bringing them confidence and autonomy.
