The Australian International School Bangkok, in conjunction with Australian Therapy Services Asia, is pleased to present a series of online talks on speech and language development in young children. The talks will be of interest to parents of children 2 to 5 years old.
The presenter is Lorelle Evans, from Australian Therapy Services Asia. Lorelle is a speech pathologist with over 20 years' experience in working with children. She provides telehealth support for children with difficulties in speech and language in international schools in Thailand.
The series of four talks, delivered online via Zoom, will be held over a four - week period in March; they will cover communication development in children from 2 to 5 five years. The talks will help to inform parents and carers on that to expect from young children as they begin to talk and how to support their communication development at home. The talks are specifically designed for parents of children attending, or about to attend, international schools in Thailand.
Each session will include a 30-minute presentation, with reference handouts provided, followed by a 15-minute question and answer time. Parents are encouraged to attend all 4 sessions.
