Dr. Caroline Musselwhite


Don't be a shut in. Go out and about!Think of how you learn! Do you do it in lessons? Or in life! So don't stop at teaching language to a person. Help them use it. Go out and about in the community. Have the buy things, say hi to people, tell you which direction they want to go next. Your child will learn more. And, even better, you'll both have fun!
