Early childhood educators play an important role in early communication development. They provide enriched opportunities for children to learn along with peers. Educators can advance their skill set in this area through continuing education opportunities offered by S-LPs. This can help them to better identify when to refer parents to an S-LP for concerns related to stuttering, social communication, and speech and language development.

If you are organizing a staff or client education session at a preschool, please contact Shoreline for more information. Sessions can be tailored to your organization's needs.
