Early Years Training Sessions £55

Early Years Training Sessions £55

I’m here to take away your confusion around language development and strategies. What to do, when and how to do it – that’s for me to put together for you. All you have to do is commit to a 2-week training programme and share with me the difficulties you are having in your setting and follow the suggestions I give to you. I understand that you’re tired at the end of the week. I understand that you’ve got commitments, family, friends, work and that thinking of ways you can implement activities and adapting routines and language doesn’t always sound like fun.

I’m here to help – all of those questions about the best way to start, how to increase attention span, how to make eye contact, how to increase language and communication – that’s what I’m here for.

All of our unlimited zoom calls will aim to help you to understand the importance of speaking with visual support, and give you ideas how you can adapt your way of working, which will both benefit a child with language and communication difficulties.
