IS THIS CHILD READY? - When to Intervene? How to Extend? And are they Learning?
How do you know what to expect in terms of skill, development and behaviour between the years of birth and five years?
The debate has been and gone. Through neuroscience, biology and genetics, we know for afact that culture and environment alone are not the sole contributors to how a child learns and develops.
This session provides a healthy overview of the mix between nature and nurture. It highlights the early signs educators need to be aware of for early intervention to ensure that any significant delay in speech or other important and basic elements of development, are not being missed.
This half day session will cover a critical knowledge base that appears to be absent in many contemporary training and tertiary courses; temperament, brain research and basic elements of development are highlighted alongside the interplay of experience, exposure, culture and environment.
Practical strategies underpinned by this knowledge are provided to assist educators in the daily decisions they make about children’s needs and strengths.
