Cooking to Boost Developmental Skills

Cooking can help parents and children build connection and communication. In this workshop, we'll explore ways to frame the cooking experience to be successful for children of all abilities and teach how cooking can help children work on fine & gross motor skills, communication, language, literacy, math, sensory integration, and most importantly, relationship-building. Author of The Kitchen Classroom Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer shares strategies that she uses with her children.
