Upcoming training for teaching staff

LLP & AOT joint training session 

Communication and the use of visuals for mainstream schools

This is an interactive and discussion-based session for teaching staff. We will touch on what communication is, the different areas of communication and how it is more than just words. We will discuss what communication difficulties can look like with children we work with and the range of diagnoses these might be a part of. We will share the means, reasons and opportunities model as a framework in how to facilitate communication with our children. We will then share strategies including visual supports to support and scaffold learning for all children and especially children who have communication difficulties. These strategies include transitional support, visual schedules, choice/communication boards, and emotions boards. We will teach you how to talk so children will understand, and also share some simple Makaton signs.

Tuesday 12 March 2024 - 9.30 – 11.30 am at Bunnyhill - Main Hall.  £50 per delegate.  To book please contact
