We are the Early Years Training Team, representing Allied Health Professionals in NHS Tayside.
Did you know that 20-30% of children do not meet their developmental milestones by school entry?
We want to change this figure, and give children and families in Tayside the best start possible.
Our training, 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' is delivered across Tayside, and has been taken up by over 300 people to date. The training is fun, interactive, engaging and completely free! It is suitable for anyone working with children and/or their families.
We deliver information from Speech & Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Nutrition & Dietetics. The session includes ages & stages of child development and focuses on how we can encourage parents to support their child's development (pre-birth – 5 years) through 3 key messages “Talk, Play and Explore”.
This is a great opportunity to come together and share ideas and experiences.
What we do today will become the foundations of tomorrow.
