Speech & Language Support
ELKLAN Speech and Language Support for 3-16 year olds
This course provides information and strategies to use in and out of the
classroom to develop the communication skills of all children but especially
those with speech, language and communication needs.
At the end of the course participants will:
- Have a clear, thorough understanding of all areas of language; receptive,
expressive, syntax, memory, non-verbal communication and development
- Have strategies that they can implement the next day to support all
- Be able to support colleagues in their practice
- Be able to implement Speech and Language Therapy programmes
To see our full range of support for students with English as an Additional Language, see our EAL & Language Support page.
Fiona O, 2014 Quote from Elklan student
Immediate practical strategies that can be implemented… I now have knowledge which has helped me understand difficulties a child may be experiencing with language and literacy and how I can help or seek support for them.
We run this course periodically throughout the year at our offices in Manchester.
As a more cost-effective solution, we can also deliver the training direct in your school.
There is an opportunity for participants to gain a Level 2 or 3 qualification (with 9 credits) accredited through AptEd. The participants will need to do 1 – 2 hours work per training day outside of the course time and complete an e-portfolio.
