In our work in schools we are seeing increasing numbers of children with speech sound difficulties. This affects their ability to interact with other children and adults and can also impact on their progress with reading and writing. Our Speech training includes a model of how speech sounds develop and the different points of breakdown that can result in speech sound difficulties. You will learn how to identify what is affecting the speech sound development of the children you work with, and how to devise and deliver effective intervention to help them. Our training includes information about typical speech sound development and when to worry, strategies to help children in the classroom, and how to teach vocabulary so children learn, and say the sounds in new words accurately.
