Batemans Bay I info session: children's language development

Tuesday 16 November 2021

10:30am - 11:30am

Where: Batemans Bay Library, Hanging Rock Place, Batemans Bay

Cost: Free

Speech pathologists from Eurobodalla Health Service are coming to the library to talk about children’s language and literacy development.

Parents and carers of children from zero to three (and others who are interested) will find out more information about:

  • choosing the right books
  • ways parents and carers can help to build language and literacy
  • encouraging interactions
  • how to support multi-lingual children through book reading
  • what to do if your child is having difficulties with reading
  • and more…

The language skills of one in five Australian children are behind before they start school. This talk will help parents and carers support and encourage their children's development.

The session will also include a reading from one of Speech Pathology Australia's children’s book of the year.

This event is a part of the annual Speechie Library Talks campaign.
