Communication is such a fundamental aspect of our children’s development. Did you know your child will develop 80% of their oral language skills before they head into Prep. How do they learn all of this you ask? From you of course, and the environment around them.
Development of key language skills such as reading, writing, narrative skills and critical thinking skills, are not only key to ‘English’ but almost all school subjects including ‘Maths’, “Science’, ‘Drama’ and more.
Early childhood stuttering can often be a normal part of development. As children begin to puts words together to make longer sentences, they may get stuck on a word, repeats words, or ‘gets lost’ half way through their sentence. Your child’s stutter may fluctuate, being noticeable for several days or weeks, then having a break from stuttering before starting back up again. This is also a normal part of development.
At Great Minds we of course offer individualized therapy sessions. Throughout the year we also offer group therapy sessions for ‘Early Speech and Language Development’, and ‘Prep for Prep‘ (for Kindy/ Pre-prep children) to develop the skills they need for reading and writing.
