Most may be surprised by how many opportunities for listening and language leaning are sprinkled throughout an ordinary day. We’ll start our discussion with ideas to maximize language during:
· Meal time (e.g., grocery lists, recipes, table settings).
· Play time (e.g., arts/crafts, blocks, cars, active outdoor games).
· Chore time (e.g., cleaning up toys, sorting laundry, yardwork).
· Music time (e.g., enjoying music together or making your own).
· Story time (e.g., sharing your favorite books or creating new stories).

We would love to hear your additional ideas and ways you’ve found to weave language learning into daily life.

Parents of children who are deaf/hard of hearing who are pursuing the listening and spoken language approach and professionals that serve them are invited to join us for this discussion.

This webinar will be recorded. Please see the website for access to this and other webinar recordings:
