The focus is on Communication Support. As
in our clinical work our aim is to maximize
children’s communicative abilities in the
classroom. Each course provides
participants with ideas/strategies and
background linked to facilitating children’s
communication skills. The programme
developed out of our work supporting
children with communication difficulties in
mainstream schools. It is difficult to pass on
background information (the WHYs) or
discuss strategies (the HOW to) during
school visits.
Accredited training courses are increasingly
suggested as integral to a child’s Speech &
Language Therapy Care Plan. Our goal is
to facilitate Communication Support for
children who may experience lifelong
communication disability.
Places will be allocated on a “first come, first
served” basis and will require payment with
registration. Drinks are available but lunch
is not provided.
Applications are accepted up until 10 days
before a course (BUT please note courses
are usually oversubscribed well before this).
Makaton training can also be bought in for a
setting or group settings. For further
information please contact Kate Tole,
Speech & Language Therapist
on Tel: 01535 292824.
On certain courses a proportion
of places are held back and
allocated on clinical need.
A reduction in cost will be
granted to school staff by a
child’s Speech & Language
Therapist prior to the course.
Unfortunately this does not
guarantee a place.
If you feel you are eligible for a
reduction in cost you will need to
discuss this with the child’s
Speech & Language Therapist.

Vocabulary training. It is
a practical, enjoyable

the signs and symbols

this course have put the
