Storytelling & Narrative Skills

Speech, language and communication skills develop in everyday situations throughout the day at home and school. This is a workshop for parents and staff working with school age children. Telling stories, sharing news, relaying events are all essential communication skills that form part of our everyday interactions.

  • Become familiar with how narrative develops in children.
