Language is the single best early predictor of how children will perform when they enter formal schooling. As caring grown-ups, we can encourage healthy language development by having rich conversations and creating interactive, language-rich environments.

In this webinar, hear from Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, the Stanley and Debra Lefkowitz Faculty Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Temple University and Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. Kathy is a researcher in the areas of language, play, and child development. She’s also a long-time Sesame Street advisor. Listen in as she shares Six Languagizing Principles that you can apply in your work with young children.

Learning Goals:

  • Learn the six languagizing principles
  • Explore ways to incorporate the principles into your interactions and environments
