Early Language Development: Prioritizing Connection and Coregulation to Maximize Communication and Social-Emotional Development Deb Norris

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Vermont Higher Education Collaborative
Instructor: Danielle Kent, MS, CCC-SLP

This workshop is designed to provide participants with a greater understanding of early communication development, including: the key difference in early right brain/left brain development; the key difference in top brain/bottom brain development; various communication/language milestones; and strategies to track these skills over time. With this knowledge, participants will identify how adult-child connection through active listening, acknowledgement and co-regulation can positively support a child's ability to communicate and build language. Participants will also learn strategies to use for supporting all young children's language development, but especially those who are struggling. Over the course of the two-day series, participants will: · Describe early communication and language development as it relates to social-emotional development; · Understand and define the difference between coregulation and self-regulation, and verbalize the essential nature of coregulation supports in our classrooms; · Understand, practice, and apply key listening and communication strategies to support connection with young learners; · Understand and define key strategies to support the development of problem solving skills in young learners; · Identify, describe, and apply various strategies for supporting early communication and social emotional development in young learners.
