Summer Brain Gains

Raising awareness about the importance of summer learning

Lorna Wick

Research focused on the developing brain indicates the vital role executive functions, and in particular working memory, plays in developmental language, literacy and mathematical concepts.

This workshop will focus on how families can support their deaf and hard of hearing child to develop strengths in working memory through experiences and games. You will leave with ideas to support a summer of learning.
