About the Event
Thursdays, September 30 - November 18
9 - 10am
for ages 12-24 months (with parent)
Led by a local speech-language pathologist, this unique 8-week class will focus on play and development of 12-24 month olds. Every child has their own unique path in their development, a path that is a journey for parents as well. As children begin to grow, most parents have questions and/or concerns about the multi-faceted and ever-changing child in front of them. Children who are in the 12-24 month age group may be learning to walk, talk, play with others, and think differently about their world as they move from infant to toddler.
This unique 8-week class will be a small group of children in the 12-24 month age range with one parent in attendance. Classes will be held once per week for 60 minutes. The group will be led by Kelly Shaw, MS CCC SLP, local speech-language pathologist, and will include:
- Education for parents around your child’s communication, social, cognitive, and play skill development, tailored to the interests and needs of the group. An emphasis will be placed on looking at the whole child and how skills can connect to other areas of our development.
- A fun, enriching play environment to connect with your child and practice strategies or skills that have been discussed in the group.
- Connections with other parents experiencing similar wins and challenges as their child grows.
- Opportunities to have individual conversations with a speech-language pathologist about questions or resources around typical development.
A speech-language pathologist has expertise in how a child develops their communication skills, thinking skills, play skills, and feeding skills, all of which are common areas for parents to be curious about.
