Infant Early Language Support 2023-24

In this course, we will take a close look at how teachers can intentionally expose Infants to language through daily classroom routines. We will explore ways teachers facilitate infants' language development through conversations, preverbal cues, or a mixture of both. The strategies we will learn include imitating or initiating sounds, adding words to extend communication, and engaging in back-and-forth language exchanges.

You will earn 0.5 CEUs for completing this course.
