Kindergarten prep includes preparing your child for Manhattan kindergarten admissions interviews, the T&E Assessment (Thinking and Engagement Assessment), and FLI (First Looks Insights) which require a variety of kindergarten readiness skills. Skills addressed include improving attention, following directions, understanding stories, vocabulary, improving general knowledge, articulation, problem solving, memory, critical thinking, and pre-reading and math skills. Confidence and self-esteem are critical for kindergarten success.
Speech therapy progress is consistently reviewed with parents and homework activities that suit child and family are recommended. Stephanie’s programs encourage Manhattan parents to practice speech therapy, oral motor therapy, and kindergarten prep techniques throughout each day.
