Eliminating meat is not that challenging: many cultures develop brilliance, strength and creativity despite thinking that animal protein is necessary#lighterculture#hamptoncreek#gatesfoundation
And despite eating less meat, women still bear many of its costs.

Sometimes science teachers want to
know about the language they should use to teach their elementary and middle school kids. Just use the evidence, the facts I say!
The current warming trend is very likely mostly human-induced and proceeding at an unprecedented rate in the past 1,300 years.

Of course reading struggles affect home life, talking life, presentation life, cultural life and life choices; but, finding early passions, celebrating them, and cultivating them can truly turn around parents and their children!

We need to be able to perfectly blend common core pre K globally competitive goal oriented targets, cognitive linguistic concepts of spatial, quantitative, qualitative , descriptive and social emotional factors and embed these in highly creative and interactive play. We did it before, we have to find it and do it again!

Competing stimuli: think about it. Phone ringing; TV is on, you are texting while you reading to your child??? What becomes salient to your child?The auditory? The visual? Or the meaning of the words that go along with the picture? Confusion sets in. Boundaries become soft. Language learning struggles are triggered!

Specializing in the circle of learning : the spoken to reading continum
Introduction
PSLLS was founded to support the CIRCLE of LEARNING for any age: beginning with the sharpening of auditory discrimination, the elongation of the eye gaze to facilitate joint attention, the encouragement for the reciprocal ‘dance’ so that spoken and eventually written language may grow. PEDIATRIC SPEECH-LANGUAGE & LITERACY SERVICES, LLC evolved over 30 years becoming a special place where evaluations, practice sessions and consultations continue in Northern Westchester NY, and NYC, and now offered in Danbury, CT as well.  Here, you as parents and professionals have the opportunity to acquire, and share evidence-based language and non-verbal language practices to maximize communicative competence within a cozy home office, the comfort of your own home, or your place of work. Dependent on age, using rich play, blended technology, and the essentials of the core curriculum. PSLLS is dedicated to be family focused providing academic and social carryover as well as providing information to the community and beyond.
