Free Talking Matters Workshops, Dunedin & Invercargill

Talking Matters is holding free workshops in Dunedin and Invercargill with Health and Wellbeing for Learning.

Educators and people working with parents and children are invited. You will learn how to help parents build their children's oral language skills.

We will also share a range of practical, effective tools and resources to help you to help parents.

If parents help children to build strong oral language skills at home, children are far more likely to succeed at school. Not all parents know how to provide this help.

For those working with young children or their parents, this workshop will help you to help them. 

Places are filling fast.
