Early Communication Strategies for Babies and Families, Coming to TCPL

ITHACA— Tompkins County Public Library is pleased to offer a program exploring ways caregivers can help children up to 18 months improve communication skills. The program will be offered on four consecutive Fridays, starting January 10, 2020, from 10:30 am to 11:00 am, in the Library’s Thaler/Howell Programming Room.


Babies learn to communicate through interacting with their caregivers. Pediatric speech pathologist Sarah Bogdanovitch will discuss ways to connect with infants and toddlers through songs, signs, and books. Participants will learn how to tune into the ways babies already communicate, and practice play-based strategies to encourage early gestures, sounds, and words. This program is ideal for children up to 18 months and their caregivers.

No registration is required for this free program.
