Children need practice to become good listeners. With good listening skills children can understand what someone is talking about, they can follow instructions and they can complete tasks.

Good looking and listening skills will help your child succeed at classroom tasks. Importantly, being able to hear the differences in sounds in words is a skill for young children to have when they begin to learn to read and write.
