Join us for The 2nd Annual Children's Center Institute, a professional development program that brings in world-renowned practitioners to teach and train speech-language pathologists, educators, physical therapists, occupational therapists and parents.
This year's event will feature an open-registration workshop with Janice Greenberg, B.Sc., D.S.P., Reg. CASLO, the director of Early Childhood Education Services at The Hanen Centre. The Hanen Centre is a globally-known authority in family-centered early language intervention. For more than 35 years, they have specialized in developing evidence-based programs for parents and educators that break down the research into easy-to-use language-building strategies and training professionals to use Hanen's effective teaching methodology for involving and engaging parents in the intervention process.
The Institute is hosted by The Children's Center for Communication and Development at The University of Southern Mississippi. It is made possible through generous funding provided by The Mapp Family Foundation.
As children progress from toddlers to preschoolers, it’s the important adults in their lives – their parents and educators – who make the biggest difference in helping them learn. That’s because a child’s best learning happens during natural, everyday interactions with more sophisticated conversation partners. This session will outline how to create the kinds of quality interactions that best build children’s early language and literacy skills at home and in early childhood settings.
