Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, Dr. Lauren Katz and Dr. Joanne Pierson will discuss the role that everyday board and card games, including some of the classics, play in helping children develop language and literacy skills. Drs. Katz and Pierson, speech-language pathologists with advanced degrees in education and a specialty in dyslexia, will highlight games for the preschooler to the young adult that the family can enjoy together while supporting and building skills in vocabulary, memory, social language, comprehension, reading, and spelling. Come to the Canton Public Library at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 11, 2013 and get some great, cost-effective ideas to round out your holiday shopping list!
