Facilitating Your Child’s Language Development Webinar

By ASL, Bilingual, Cultural & Medical Perspectives, Early ASL Acquisition, Early Intervention, Early Language Development, Information

 

By the end of the webinar, you will have answers for the following questions:

  • What is the importance of language development in the first years of a child’s life?
  • Can my child develop spoken language and use sign language?
  • What are the variables that may affect my child’s language development?
  • How can I monitor my child’s language development?
    What strategies can facilitate my child’s language development?

This workshop is led by an Infant Hearing Program Speech-Language Pathologist/LSLS Cert. AVT and an Infant Hearing Program American Sign Language Consultant.

 

Parents Feedback:

“I learned so much about how my child hears and how to help them develop the best hearing and listening skills.”

“I heard for the first time about American Sign Language and got to ask so many questions about Deaf culture from a Deaf ASL Consultant.”

CTV’s Your Morning

By Press, Silent Voice

We were thrilled to have Silent Voice staff member Wanda Blackett interviewed on CTV Your Morning. Wanda shared our excitement regarding Ontario introducing ASL & LSQ credit courses in high schools in the fall of 2021. ASL and LSQ will be offered as part of the second language curriculum project. This will have a definite positive impact on society and is a significant step forward for the general public to learn more about language accessibility in the Deaf and hard of hearing community.
