An Australian live and online Professional Learning Experience for Early Childhood Educators to help children communicate with confidence so that they are ready for school
- Set up interactions for success in communication
- Foster a sense of belonging for children who find social participation difficult because of communication difficulties
- Use evidence based techniques that strengthen pre-literacy success
- Reduce frustration levels of children who find it difficult to be understood
Growing Words® Modules Covered in Full Day Workshop include:
Telling My Story
Learning To Listen & Understand
Putting Ideas and Thoughts into Words
Growing Words® builds the capacity of early childhood educators in helping all children in the area of communication. However, it also incorporates aspects of well-being, connectedness and identity since communication is the foundation for each of these domains. A child understands themselves (identity) and others (connectedness) through the stories they hear, tell themselves and share with others. The ability to tell their own story and be understood and valued by significant others has a direct impact on their well-being.
