Language is a tool for communication, be it written or spoken. Listening, speaking, reading and writing are corner stones to language learning. Difficulties in early literacy have a direct impact on children's subsequent formal learning in school. Early intervention and support can make a significant difference by equipping children with the ability to meet these learning challenges. This workshop aims to equip educators and parents with an understanding of how children learn. It includes practical strategies that adults can apply to empower children to learn effectively and independently.
