A little about the presentation...
The Power of Play
This seminar is based on the understanding that young children learn best through play that is relevant and meaningful to their lives...not through direct instruction, drill work or flash cards! Through play, children discover, interact, absorb, experience, create, explore and learn. Cari provides clinically relevant activities and strategies to create functional learning opportunities that promote cognitive, physical, social-emotional and language development in the natural environment. There will also be an evidence-based discussion of the limitations of screen-based learning for young children with developing brains and bodies.
