We run a series of working groups with a small number of children to enhance and develop their language and communication skills. The group is supported by one of our experienced early years practitioners.
The group will focus on the following verbal and non-verbal communication skills:
- To encourage interaction with other children – taking turns, verbal turn-taking, introducing language e.g. naming other children in the group.
- Looking activities – developing eye contact.
- Attention and listening – listening activities, awareness of sounds, identifying noises, response to own name.
- Building self-esteem.
