Simple Secrets to Your Child’s Success
This presentation offers professionals an opportunity to learn how to create hands-on play experiences for children. Through knowledge of child development, play types, arrangement of materials and scaffolding, meaningful exploration can be created. In doing so, children will increase their attention spans and listening skills while reducing impulsivity, distractibility and negative behaviors. When used consistently this method guarantees better cooperation, higher level social interactions with peers and enhanced self-esteem.
