During our Phase 1 reopening, all Jump Start services are being delivered through a virtual classroom.
Jump Start is a weekly two hour class lead by listening and spoken language professionals. This classroom setting builds upon the foundation of Parent Coaching sessions and provides multiple opportunities for both the child and the parent/caregiver to practice and improve their listening and spoken language skills. This group setting allows children to begin to learn the routine of a classroom, continue to develop their listening/auditory skills, build receptive vocabulary, and begin imitating words. Parents and caregivers are practicing strategies in a community setting while they build relationships with other parents as well as learning more about their child’s needs in an educational setting. The child’s Desert Voices team will support the family to ensure the child is acquiring skills in all developmental domains that allows the child to independently learn in an educational setting.
