Language Lead Support
Early language and communication skills are crucial for children’s success in school and beyond. Language and communication skills include the ability to understand others and express oneself using words, gestures, or facial expressions. Children who develop strong language and communication skills are more likely to arrive at school ready to learn. They also are less likely to have difficulties learning to read and are more likely to have higher levels of achievement in school.
