This great resource delivers effective interventions focused on improving listening and attention skills, auditory sequential memory, vocabulary development, receptive and expressive language and early communication skills.
What will I learn?
The workshop is designed as a two-hour in-depth training session on Information Carrying words. It provides a detailed explanation on how to use the EYBIC Word Pack resource, which includes teaching notes, a PowerPoint Presentation and handouts.
By the end of this workshop, you will:
- Have built confidence and skills to support the development of children's vocabulary and expressive learning, listening and turn taking skills;
- Be able to offer practical advice and strategies to support parents and families; and
- Have a range of practical ideas and resources to aid you work with small groups of children at risk of speech and language delay.
The EYBIC Word Pack is a rich resource containing beautiful pictures and interesting activities to promote the vocabulary, speaking and listening skills of a wide range of children through the principle of Information Carrying Words. The concept provides a structured framework, which helps children to increase the amount of information they can remember. This resource is produced by Elklan.
