Workshop Topic: “Capturing Teachable Moments With Your Child”
Parents and caregivers of children with special needs can sometimes feel ill equipped to address a child’s learning needs, and can feel especially inadequate when there is a large group of trained professionals working with their children.
Information in this workshop will support you, as parents and caregivers, to appreciate the importance of your role in a child’s learning and will help you feel better equipped to recognize and utilize the teachable moments in a child’s natural life.
Participants will learn how to identify a multitude of natural teaching opportunities throughout a child’s day AND develop the skills to capitalize on those moments! For example, mealtimes can be turned into opportunities to teach about counting, adjectives, classes, motor skills, etc. A child’s learning potential can be greatly enhanced by practicing just a few of these insights and strategies.
We will discuss a variety of ideas for all levels of learners as well as strategies for using sibling interactions to capitalize on a child’s play and social skills.
During the workshop, there will be interactive audience participation, and participants will have an opportunity to address situations specific to their child’s learning.
To register, please contact Krista at 608.785.4100, ext. 221, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you on September 13th!
