Teacher Talks offers educators the knowledge and ability to improve their students listening skills in the classroom, Pre-K-12. Students come to school with varied abilities in focus and active listening which impacts their academic and social abilities in the classroom. This program offers the teacher ways to develop and build listening strategies into the existing curriculum in fun and interesting ways.

TeacherTalks is a 2.5 hour course offered virtually. This course is available to teachers, administrators, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, play therapists, tutors, and support personnel. This course is geared toward working with children ages Pre-K through High School.

School plans are not definite and none of us know what this school year will look like yet, but one thing is definite. We all need our students to “hear” our lessons! Some students already had difficulty in the classroom, but now we are adding the layer of a virtual platform. Join our webinar on Friday, August 21st from 1:00-3:30pm EST, to learn the necessary auditory skills for the students and the tools required for the teacher to present their curriculum in a way that students can really “hear” it.
