Workshop for Secondary School Staff - Truro 12 July 2011

 Understanding, identifying and supporting speech, language and communication needs in the Secondary Classroom

This is an ideal opportunity for secondary SENCOs, teachers and teaching assistants to refresh and up-skill in this vitally important area. Some comments from schools who attended our Devon workshops in June are:

"What help is available for secondary schools in order to support students. Very friendly presenters. Well informed and helpful. Thank you!"
Assistant Head/SENCO, Teign School

"I found the SEBD section very interesting and beneficial. Learning about useful approaches to take back to my school."
HLTA, Newton Abbot College

"Ideas for whole school approach. Looking at pupils from different perspectives."
Modern languages teacher, Hele's School

Speech, language and communication skills underpin cognitive, emotional and social development. These skills are essential for successful participation in, and access to, much of the secondary curriculum.

Refresh your knowledge of speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)
Review the challenges of transition for students with SLCN
Explore the link between language impairment and social, emotional and behavioural (SEB) difficulties
Take away techniques and resources to use in your classroom
The workshops are led by Anne Ayre and Emma Dean. They have extensive experience of working within education settings and have contributed to recent projects commissioned by the DCSF/DfE, the Nuffield Foundation and the CommunicationTrust who lead the Hello campaign.

Truro: Tuesday 12th July, 1.30 to 3.30pm (doors 1.15pm)
