Little Talkers

 

We offer three communication enrichment groups through our Little Talkers program.  Each group targets different developmentally appropriate communication skills. The classes are for caregivers and their children who are learning to communicate. Caregivers are active participants in all classes. Each week caregivers will learn a different strategy to encourage communication through daily activities. Children will enjoy socializing with new friends while engaging in fun and interactive songs, games, and stories.
