Sharing Sensitive News

Often, early childhood educators are the first to identify concerns about a child’s speech and language development. However, educators are often unsure how to broach their concerns with parents.

This ‘4P’ Teaching-Learning cycle is designed to prepare early childhood educators to effectively share concerns about a child’s speech and language development with parents.

 

This workshop can be delivered to a group of up to 20 educators in a 2 to 3 hour presentation.
