|Do you work with young children with hearing loss and their families? Do you support young children with hearing loss in a preschool or nursery? Are you interested in knowing what you can do to include more purposeful play as a basis for learning?
Young children problem solve and learn about other people’s perspectives by playing ‘schools’ or ‘mums and dads’ – such activities, allow even very young children to use their imaginations to contemplate different possibilities.
When we reflect and problem solve, we use our imaginations to think things through. This uniquely human ability enables us to imagine different outcomes and then act in the way we think is best, or learn from past experience to change our behaviour for next time. These complex skills begin developing during infancy and develop throughout childhood.
Children with hearing loss often have delayed development of symbolic and imaginative play in addition to language skills. Attend this workshop to learn about the normal development sequence and useful assessments. You will leave with practical ideas so you can support children to develop these skills for better long term outcomes.
