Training 1: Supporting Language Development, Birth to Age Five
The first training in the series will focus on the beginning stages of language and literacy. The training will look at the progression of a child’s language from infancy through age five and the critical role that the adult and the environment play in this development. As well as the exploration of children’s early experience with communication, speaking and hearing vocabulary, and the role this plays in a child’s emerging literacy skills. The more children know about language and literacy before they arrive at school, the better equipped they are to succeed in reading. This three-week interactive training will be conducted as an online platform with one Zoom call built-in during week 2 of the training. The one-hour Zoom call will allow participants to collaborate and interact with one another, building a supportive environment for early childhood professionals to share their understandings and ideas of a child’s development of language and literacy.
Presenter: Dr. Kelli Odden

How do I sign up for the Trainings?
The trainings are set up in groups (30 per group). You may wonder why you are signing up for a group? Here is why- each training has a one-time face to face Zoom call built-in. Small groups will allow for a manageable amount of people in one Zoom call. The Zoom call will allow you to build relationships, have interactions, and learn from one another. Exciting!
