Lunch and Learn: Baby Beats (presentation starts at 12:45, cash and carry lunches are available)

The BabyBeats™ early intervention resource app is filled with motivating and fun musical activities for parents of babies and toddlers with hearing loss to bond, play, and learn together. The app helps to create lots of opportunities for singing, talking and listening in the home. It will guide parents through activities that will build the foundation for all later learning, listening and communication. During this Lunch and Learn session you will become familiar with the components of the BabyBeats app, how to use this app at home and during early intervention sessions. We will also introduce you to Pintrest and some additional activities to use with BabyBeats.
