Researcher brings tips on language development to local preschool
BULLHEAD CITY — When’s the best time to begin teaching a child language skills?
As early as possible, says Renata Zangl.
Zangl has written a new book, “Raising a Talker,” designed to help children younger than 3 get a head start on their language skills. She recently gave a presentation for the staff at Little Scooters Preschool in Bullhead City, focusing on activities adults can do with infants and toddlers to help them become talkers.
Zangl said that developing language skills early in life gives those children an advantage as they continue to learn.
“You build a good foundation in the first three years,” she said. “That’s the best time to provide language skills that will give them an advantage into the school years and beyond.”
