Parenting Workshop at Kidspace Museum
Tuesday, June 9, 2015
6:00 to 8:00 pm 
$25 per Adult  $40 per couple

Learn how to support your little one's language development from a licensed speech-language pathologist. Babies and toddlers acquire language at lightning speeds and as parents, we are their primary models. Learn how to support and enhance your child's naturally growing communication skills while developing a deep, lasting, communicative relationship with your child. Take home resources and tips on how to communicate with your child as she grows and develops by making small changes that work with your lifestyle. 

This workshop will also answer the following questions:

-What should I expect to see between 6 months and 3 years and how can I identify signs of hearing loss and /or speech-language delays while appreciating the amazing things my child is doing?

-Sign language, flashcards, bilingualism, and educational videos-- what does my baby really need and how can I realistically provide it?

-How do bottles, sippy cups, pacifiers, and early feeding relate to speech development?

Presented by Roisin Ching, MS CCC-SLP, Co-Owner of Echo Speech Therapy. Echo Speech Therapy is committed to providing therapy and community education using a supportive and empowering approach. We are speech-language pathologists, community educators, moms, and believers in the tremendous power of communication.

First Words:  Language Development Q&A

12 to 24 months is an exciting year for families, as babies begin to express themselves verbally for the first time. It’s a period of discovery not only for babies finding their own voices, but for parents becoming aware of just how much their children are capable of! You’re starting to see that your day-to-day interactions have a huge impact on what your budding toddler is “talking” about -- from play time, to nap time, to dinner time.

You might also notice pressure from relatives (or even yourself) to have your 18-month-old speaking like a kindergartener. … Feeling a little overwhelmed by it all? We hear you! Come join us for a question and answer session in a relaxed environment that will put your mind at ease. Feel free to bring your child along!

Here are some topics we will cover:

  • how to make little changes to your routine that can help facilitate language learning
  • how to identify signs of hearing loss and or speech and language delay
  • bottles, sippy cups, pacifiers, early feeding and how this all relates to speech development
  • best practices for bilingual development
