How do infants and toddlers discern different languages in their early developmental years, and what role do parents play in this development?
Dr. Naja Ferjan Ramírez, distinguished professor in Language Acquisition and Multilingualism Endowment at the University of Washington, will explain the crucial role of fathers for infant and toddler language development. Dr. Ferjan Ramírez will also discuss how early experiences shape the brain and enable it to learn the sounds of multiple languages, combine sounds into words, and discover word meanings. She will highlight the importance of early interactions, relationships, and experiences that serve as building blocks of language learning.
Join us for a webinar that will benefit professionals, organizations, and institutes focusing on early childhood development, as well as parents curious about best practices for their young child’s language development.
