Coffee Morning with Talking Brains at Blossom Village, Dubai

At Blossom Village Nursery we are passionate about all aspects of language and communication development, which is why we are thrilled to have Reine Bou Issa Ghafary from Talking Brains (a special needs centre in Dubai who specialise in language development and bilingualism) join us for an open coffee morning, and for the best bit… you’re all invited!.  At Blossom Village we believe that the early years is the ideal age for language skills to be acquired.

It is important for us as parents and educational professionals to be aware of the critical periods/timelines for speech and language development, in infants and young children. It is important that we are exposing our children (during their early years) to multiple languages, as it will be more difficult for our children to learn a second or third language in the future.

Milestones for speech and language development:

The first signs of communication occur when an infant learns that a cry will bring food, comfort, and companionship. Newborns also begin to recognize important sounds in their environment, such as the voice of their mother or primary caretaker. By 6 months of age, most babies recognize the basic sounds of their native language.

Children vary in their development of speech and language skills. However, they follow a natural progression or timetable for mastering the skills of language. These milestones help doctors and other health professionals determine if a child is on track or if he or she may need extra help. Reine and her team from Talking Brains will cover 6 key areas of language development during the coffee morning:

  • Milestones for language and communication development
  • When to consult a Specialist
  • Strategies and tips to stimulate language at home
  • The Importance of Immersion in Early Intervention – additive bilingualism
  • Types of  bilingualism
  • Best time to acquire a language
