Our In-Depth training days offer a more detailed look at some of the topics covered in our general overview training. We cover a review of the evidence and research on this topic and these days include more opportunity for discussion and individual application through interactive workshops.

 

Typically the Speech & Language training is divided into Pre-School,  3-7years and 7years+. The younger sessions cover activities to promote early speech and language development and activities suitable for this age range. The older session includes activities and resources more appropriate for older children and identifying speech and language targets from current knowledge and error patterns.

 

Often the Pre-school session is offered as half day course or twilight training session, or you may wish to choose two or three more pre-school topics to a create a full training day.

Speech and Language: 7+years

 

The day will include an overview of the research on speech, language and communication development in children with Down syndrome.  It will focus on extending the early communication strengths seen in children with Down syndrome and targeting later, more complex communication skills, supporting friendships and interactions.  Strategies to target vocabulary and language understanding and production across the curriculum will be included as well as improving speech clarity and intelligibility.  Common difficulties and error patterns will be addressed as well as looking at strategies to encourage motivation and developing engaging activities that will support generalisation.
