I'm available to deliver training at a time to suit you, evening and weekend training is offered at no extra cost and each session will be written to meet your specific requirements. I can deliver online or face to face training, whichever you'd prefer and is most cost effective.
All training I offer comes with handouts, personalised certificates and follow up email support. The training listed below is a small sample of what I can offer, please contact me if you're interested in other topics.
I'm available to speak at conferences, present workshops and can offer support if you need advice about individual or groups of children. I also offer mentor support for Early Years SENCOs.
The role of the Early Years SENCO
This course is for those new to the role of SENCO and relates to the statutory requirements in England. Participants will receive a copy of my SENCO Toolkit and a range of practical strategies and tips will be provided.
Understanding and Supporting Children's Behaviour
We will look at the typical development of social skills and factors which can impact on this, as well as the role of the environment in supporting behaviour for both adults and children. A range of practical strategies will be discussed and participants will be given documentation to support them in their setting to meet children's individual needs.
Supporting Children's Language Skills
This practical course is a great use of Pupil Premium funding, you will complete a communication audit of your setting pre and post training to show the impact. We will examine factors that can impact on children's language skills and how to ensure early identification of children's needs so appropriate support can be provided. A range of realistic assessment tools, strategies and activity ideas will be provided and we will examine how our own interaction styles can open up or close down children's language.
Supporting Children's Attention and Listening Skills
Anecdotal evidence suggests these vital skills are in decline and without them, children will find it difficult to learn effectively. During this course we will look at the possible causes of attention and listening difficulties, (including our environments) and most importantly, discuss effective strategies which will benefit all children.
Child Development, Early Identification and Support
During this course we will examine development in each of the prime areas and discuss behaviours which may indicate the need for further discussion, observation, assessment and referrals. Practical suggestions will be given about how to work as a staff team while taking the child's strengths and interests into account and valuing input from the child's family.
