Is Your JK Child Adjusting Well to School? Language Express May be Able to Help!

 

New Process for Language Express Referrals

The process for referring children in Junior Kindergarten to Language Express will be different in the fall of 2019. Referrals for children in JK will only be accepted directly from parents or legal guardians. We encourage JK teachers to use speech and language milestone checklists to support conversations with parents about their children’s development.

The deadline for referrals for children in Junior Kindergarten is November 30. This means that children born in 2015 must be referred (by their parents!) by November 30, 2019.

Language Express Tip of the Week

Take a walk on the wild side together. Play wild style Simon Says such as “Simon Says, twirl like a leaf and then run like a turkey”. Challenge your child's listening skills by making the instructions longer and more complicated.
