Supporting Communication and Language Development by Melinda Sturges

Such is the popularity of Melinda Sturges’ seminar on ‘Supporting Language and Communication Development’, that we will also host this talk at our Beachside School on Tuesday, 5th December at 6.30pm, giving parents two choices of venues.

Time:  6:30 - 8:00 pm
Date:  5th Dec 2017 (Tue)
Location:  Woodland Beachside, Repulse Bay


This presentation will look at the building blocks for language development exploring how children’s language develops and what we can do as adults to develop it further. The seminar will suggest practical strategies to support your child and ways that you engage with them to develop their language skills and ensure they have all the skills necessary to engage in learning and to do well in Primary School interviews.

Communication is the number one tool your child needs for these interviews and is therefore vital in their early years. The presentation will touch on raising children bi-lingually and will also look at how technology can affect speech and language development.
