Speech and Language Support for 5-11 Years old
Communication is a crucial skill for participating in school and community life. Studies have estimated that 1 in every 15* children will experience a diagnosable language difficulty that will impact their academic potential and wellbeing. In a class of 30, that’s 2 children.
Elklan is a UK-based organisation offering accredited training courses to improve your ability to communicate with your students, and to help you develop their ability to communicate with you.
Foundations For Learning is running ‘Speech and Language Support for 5-11s’ in Zürich this year. This is a course combining theory and practice for teachers, teaching assistants and support staff, to develop their skills to support students with their language, particularly those with language difficulties. This is especially useful when working with students with Autism, Speech Sound Disorders, Developmental Language Disorder, Literacy Difficulties, Dyspraxia, Global Developmental Delay, etc.
The course will be run by UK & Australia registered Speech-Language Therapist Belinda Mahendran. Accreditation is received upon course completion.
