Supporting a Successful Transition to School
Kindergarten is an exciting new adventure! Many children flourish in this new environment, but it can also come with some challenges. The last few years have, in some cases, limited children’s opportunities to experience life outside of the home. We’ll explore ways we can support the continued development of skills that help us become engaged learners in a group setting. We’ll also discuss some common concerns caregivers may have when their child starts school.

The link to register was sent directly to all families with a child registered for kindergarten this fall as of the end of April. Contact your school for more information.

Speech-Sound Development
By the time children reach the age of seven years, they’re usually making all of the speech sounds of their first language. As children's speech develops, the number and type of errors they make changes. Many parents have questions about whether their child's speech-sound errors are typical or whether they should be concerned. This interactive session, hosted by two EIPS speech-language pathologists, will provide information about the progression of speech-sound development and the strategies caregivers can use to support this development.
