Pre-school Teacher Concerns 


From: Community Member – My Son’s pre-school teacher is concerned he isn’t able to express his needs, what can I do to help? 

One for our Speechie; Beth 

There is a lot to unpack here. Have you noticed the same? If you are noticing communication difficulties, it’s always best to have this investigated by a speech pathologist. Don’t ‘wait and see!’ 

While looking into that, how does your child express their needs at home? For example, they might have a sign or sound or way of acting that lets you know they are thirsty. Let the educators know! All children are different, and we should honour every communication intent – words and other methods!
