Learning to Talk

One of the most important milestones for young children is the development of speech and language. Parents and providers can support the development of these language skills through meaningful interactions and engagement with children. This workshop will help participants learn about communication behaviors and how to recognize communication milestones, explore ways to facilitate the development of speech and language skills and discuss speech-language development concerns.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the joys, challenges and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in). Those who choose to call in must contact the instructor for directions on how to be eligible for a certificate.

If multiple people in the same location want to participate in the webinar and need certificates, they have to join the webinar separately or contact the instructor for special instructions to each receive a certificate.
