Enhancing Children’s Communication Skills: A Workshop in Kurunegala

Our workshop held on 7th June in Kurunegala was dedicated to empowering parents and teachers with the knowledge and skills to enhance children’s communication abilities.

The workshop highlighted the vital role parents and teachers play in developing children’s communication skills. Effective communication is foundational for children’s development, influencing their social interactions, academic performance, and future success. Recognising this, our workshop aimed to equip parents and teachers with practical strategies and techniques to support and enhance their children’s communication abilities.

Key Highlights of the Workshop

  1. Identifying and Addressing Challenges: The workshop also covered the early signs of communication difficulties and the importance of early intervention. We discussed various approaches to support children struggling with communication issues, emphasising the role of collaboration between parents, teachers, and speech-language pathologists.
  2. Practical Strategies: We provided practical strategies for creating a language-rich environment at home and in the classroom. These included activities to promote vocabulary development, storytelling techniques, and ways to encourage effective communication through everyday interactions.
  3. Q&A Session: A lively Q&A session allowed participants to ask questions and share their experiences.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the parents and teachers who attended the workshop. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our knowledge and contribute to improving children’s communication skills.

At Words Speech Therapy, we are committed to continuing our efforts to support parents and teachers in their crucial role. We believe that by working together, we can create a nurturing environment where every child has the opportunity to develop strong communication skills.

Exhibition in Galle on World Autism Day, April 2nd 2024

We are thrilled to share the success of our recent exhibition in Galle, held in conjunction with World Autism Day on April 2nd. This event was a resounding success, and it was a privilege to connect with parents, teachers, professionals, and community members who are genuinely interested in understanding Autism.

We showcased a variety of speech therapy materials that can be easily developed using everyday items, along with specialised resources created by our speech therapy team. These materials included communication charts, oro-sensory motor kits, adapted storybooks, and much more. Each item was designed to be both practical and effective, providing parents and teachers with the tools they need to support communication development at home and school.

We are committed to continuing our efforts to support individuals with various communication needs and their families. We believe that by working together, we can make a significant impact on the lives.
