Components of Early Literacy - Social Communication - Developing social communication start early and respresent a skill set that we as individuals rely on throughout our lifetime. Social communication skills are the starting poing on the language to literacy continuum, and help us to know how to use language for different purposes, adapt our language to the listeners we are talking to, and what we need to understand to be an effective communicator and listener. Like many other life-long skills, children need direct opportunities to learn about and practice social communication skills. This session will explore how this topic impacts the work we do, to building foundational skills for reading success, and ties into proactive teaching in the PBIS framework.
Will be added to OCCRRA pending approval.
