Serve and Return: A Discussion on Language & Literacy for Infants and Toddlers @ YWCA Patterson & McDaniel Family Center

Presenter: Darrell Brown, YWCA Early Head Start Teacher Coach

Serve and return interactions shape brain architecture. When an infant or young child babbles, gestures, or cries, and an adult responds appropriately with eye contact, words, or a hug, neural
connections are built and strengthened in the child’s brain that supports the development of communication and social skills. This training will help us to identify the importance of language and literacy development, and how you (teacher, parent, or nurturing adult) can make the most out of your interactions with infants and toddlers.
