Event description

Description


Talk With Me Baby offers a training program on Language Nutrition which is defined as the use of language, beginning before birth and continuing throughout childhood that is sufficiently rich in engagement, quality, quantity, and context that it nourished the child socially, neurologically, and linguistically. The training provides vital information on the science behind Language Nutrition, cultivates the skills needed by early childhood educators and providers to model and effectively communicate Language Nutrition messages and practice to families, and supports parents and caregivers as a child’s first and best teachers. Vocabulary at the age of three is the single strongest predictor of a child’s future literacy and educational success, which has important implications for health and economic outcomes. Coaching caregivers to provide language nutrition to their children at an early age could drastically improve a child’s trajectory, and we believe that there are strategic workforces for delivering this coaching including early educators, healthcare professionals, foster care workers, and more. Attendees will leave equipped to coach parents on the how and why of early language exposure.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this training, the learner should be able to:

1. Discuss the role of Language Nutrition in the baby’s development and future school achievement

2. Support families through Language Nutrition Strategies and the role as a coach

3. Develop the skills necessary to train birth and adoptive parents of all backgrounds in Talk With Me Baby Strategies
