Early Childhood Educator Series:

SALDA’s Education Support Services team is hosting a professional development series for Early Childhood Educators!

Our first  Early Childhood event will be: Reducing Barriers to Understanding Classroom Directions

Over the course of the evening our speech language pathologist and psychologist will present information on supporting young children to understand classroom directions and routines. Opportunities for discussion and collaboration will be provided.

Attendees can expect to broaden their knowledge and develop strategies in the following areas:

  • Identifying indicators of poor language understanding in young children
  • Applying language strategies to support children displaying challenging behaviours
  • Using visuals to support transitions and following directions


Please watch for future professional development evening events, tailored to supporting language development in the kindy setting.
