Event description

Description

Do you have children in your classroom who has difficulties understanding and using language?


Is this affecting their ability to access the curriculum and develop confidence interacting with others?

Are you struggling to meet the needs and support these children in your classroom?

Supporting children and young people with Speech and language difficulties can be very challenging and often requires extra support. We know that the earlier you help, the better outcomes they have for their communication and learning.

During this session we will teach you what level your children are at, how you can check what they understand and how to help! This can help you start to make change even if you are waiting for Speech and Language Assessment!

The session will consist of:

  • Increased knowledge and awareness of SLCN in education and the impact they SLCN have on children's lives.

  • Increased knowledge of the role of Speech and Language Therapists within the school setting

  • Increased awareness of the Universal, Targeted, Specialist approach

  • To find out some universal strategies to supporting speech, language and communication in the classroom.

We use a combination of coaching and practical activities and will direct you to resources (both paid and free) throughout the afternoon.



This event is ideal for:

Any educational professionals working with children suspected of, or diagnosed Speech and Language difficulties, in:

  • Early Years Foundation Settings

  • Primary schools

  • Secondary schools

This event is perfect for someone working as a teacher, SENCO, teaching assistant, key worker, or therapist. Or someone with an interest in speech and language therapy, SEND, or supporting those with communication difficulties.
