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.
