Early Language and Literacy Development*

Mar 7, 2016

This session will share current research and practical applications for supporting language and literacy development in very young children.

Early language and literacy (reading and writing) development begins in the first three years of life and is closely linked to a child’s earliest experiences with books and stories. The interactions that young children have with such literacy materials as books, paper, and crayons, and with the adults in their lives are the building blocks for language, reading, and writing development. Early childhood professionals need to be knowledgeable and intentional in their support and nurturing of early language and literacy development in young children. This session will share current research and practical applications for supporting language and literacy development in very young children.

Our topic experts are available for onsite sessions, webinars, and keynotes and presentations at conferences.
