UCSF Childcare Center Presentation

Earlier this month Jody and Melissa participated in a teacher inservice for the UCSF University Childcare Center at Mission Bay. The morning session brought together the teachers and aides of the center to help with development of children's communication, and how to identify the signs of speech, language or hearing issues. We also provided their team with some of our favorite resources for childhood development including: Identify the Signs, First 5 California and Zero to Three. Sound is excited to partner with the school to not only help educate their staff, but to bring speech and hearing screenings to their center annually.
