Speech, language, and reading – a starter guide for parents
To celebrate Speech and Hearing Awareness Month this May, our speech-language pathologists hosted a free webinar “Speech, Language, and Reading – a Starter Guide for Parents. Learn how to encourage your child’s speech, language and reading skills.
The role of a speech-language pathologist is to support and improve communication. During this 45-minute webinar, we will discuss different aspects of communication development and disorders, the relationships between them, and what to do if you suspect a problem.
