Description

We all tell stories - about our experiences, about books, about friends and family. Learning how to tell stories is an important skill for young children, both for social skills and reading comprehension. Lydia Soifer, PhD will discuss the nature of story telling, how story-telling skills develop, and what can be done to support young story-tellers.

Dr. Lydia Soifer is a pediatric language and literacy specialist with over 40 years of experience in clinical and private practice. She was Director of The Soifer Center for Learning and Child Development, the first multidisciplinary private diagnostic and remedial setting, for 25 years. She continues to provide educational consultation and advocacy services. She is Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and a faculty member in the Early Intervention Training Institute (EITI) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
