Join the New York Zero-to-Three Network for this interactive workshop for parents and professionals on Supporting Toddler Learning Through Shared Book Reading, led by Greta Doctoroff, PhD, Associate Professor Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University.

Parents and providers are concerned about how to best support children’s development during the pandemic. This interactive workshop focuses on learning a research-based technique that is simple to learn and easy to implement called dialogic reading. During this workshop you will learn how to use a picture book interaction to turn reading with toddlers into a dialogue to promote interest in books and language development. This technique is a way to increase child skills while relieving pressure from parents and caregivers. This workshop will involve seeing techniques in action and practicing them together.

CE hours are also being offered for an $18 fee through Dancing Dialogue. Participants must first register with New York Zero-to-Three Network here and then register directly with Dancing Dialogue to receive CE credits.
