St. Paul's School invites you to learn how to develop the cognitive, language and social-emotional skills that underlie your child's effective social interactions and literacy comprehension. You will learn the development of various dimensions of play and the interrelationships of these dimensions of play to children's language, social-emotional skills, self-regulation, and literacy. You will learn how to nurture your child's language, play, and literacy skills to set the foundation for becoming an independent, self-motivated learner. 

The instructor, Brooke Andrews, M.A CCC-SLP, is the founder of The Speech Dynamic, PLLC,  a pediatric speech therapy practice in Houston.

Her clinical expertise includes executive skill functions, brain-based learning, social learning, autism spectrum disorders, literacy, and developmental speech and language disorders. She has presented at various conferences, including The North Carolina Exceptional Children's conference and participated on a panel for early childhood educators through The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Brooke is the co-creator of "Wiggle time," an interdisciplinary curriculum for pediatric therapy. Brooke has a special interest in social learning and is the founder of the "Social Connections," offering parent workshops and social skills groups for children.
