Talk Time - Building blocks for language development

We are pleased to announce our March 2015 workshop will be presented by Bronwyn Birch, a teacher of the deaf and an auditory verbal therapist who has over 30 years experience working here in Perth and overseas.

Research has shown that the most critical time for a child's development is birth to age four. Having worked with families in early intervention at Telethon Speech & Hearing Centre for the past fifteen years, Bronwyn has developed a program called 'Talk Time'. This program focuses on providing parents, through demonstration and coaching, the confidence to interact with their child knowing they are developing their child's language skills, readiness for school and ultimately academic success.

In our workshop, Bronwyn will provide an introduction to this program designed to teach and coach parents about the building blocks for language development.

The workshop will be held in Subiaco at the Tom Dadour Centre on Tuesday the 10th of March 2015 at 7pm.  It is open to all families affected by high-risk pregnancy, premature birth or having a sick newborn.  To register for this workshop please visit the registration page.
