Story Adventure Club – register for our 6 week SLP-led program


Story telling is an important aspect of language. Story grammar acts as a map to guide comprehension and production of narratives. It also provides a predictable structure for children to process stories efficiently. Each week we will use stories to develop skills in the following areas: 

  • Listening comprehension 
  • Story creation and retelling 
  • Story grammar structure 
  • Vocabulary  
  • Social and emotional reasoning 
  • Phonological awareness
