Invisible Stories: Discover the Power of Telling Stories without Books to Young Children


Storytelling is a powerful human experience that sometimes is lost in our quest to read books to young children. Research on the benefits of storytelling include promotion of speech and language development, literacy, memory, relationships, emotional expression and math skills. Participants will learn to adapt stories to include young children with a variety of developmental delays. Participants will leave with one story for immediate use suitable for infants, toddlers or preschoolers.
