LINKS to Language
LINKS to Language is a structured and sequenced language learning program that teaches children the prerequisites needed for learning receptive(what the child understands out of practiced routines of the home and school) and expressive (connecting words together to form thoughts) language skills. LINKS to Language teaches preverbal skills such as increased focus, attention, sustained eye contact and auditory memory.
The program builds by teaching simple to complex language forms in a systematic and logical way in which children learn on a developmental “typical” continuum which makes language learning much easier. The program also uses correction based practice, so the child never exercises error when learning. This is excellent for a child’s confidence and self-esteem.
