Training for Schools
We believe the value of training is best seen by the impact it has on teaching practice and support for children with SLCN in school. We work hard to ensure training is relevant, practical, mindful of the needs of the specific school, and that plans for follow up and maintaining momentum are discussed with senior management.
INSET / TWILIGHT / STAFF
We provide training in a variety of topics including; improving vocabulary levels, helping children understand in class, and supporting children with specific needs e.g. speech disorders, selective mutism, stammering.
ON THE JOB
This involves training individuals or small staff groups within school, e.g. to set up a new intervention package, to complete screening assessments for SLCN, and to carry out therapy programmes effectively.
Elkan have developed a range of accredited courses for supporting children with SLCN. Chris is an ELKLAN tutor and currently runs the ‘Speech & Language Support for 5-11s’ course annually at our Royal College in London.
