Course Description

This E-Learning package is available upon request to access any time.

The course will help you to support the communication and language development of children in the EYFS with support from the practical Early Communication and Language Journey resource. It includes video clips to support your understanding and knowledge and reflection points are featured throughout, to enable you to evaluate your own practice.  

To participate fully in this training, it is essential that you have a copy of The Early Communication and Language Journey resource to use whilst watching this session.  If you do not have a copy in your school/setting, please contact Bolton Start Well by telephone: 01204 338149 to make arrangements to collect a free copy from Harvey Start Well Centre.

Please allocate at least 1 hour to undertake the E-learning course, watch the video clips and complete the reflective activities.  

How will this course help?

We will:

  • Explore knowledge and understanding of typical communication and language development of children aged 0-7 years;
  • Consider how we can identify children below or at risk of communication and language delay and so improve early identification;
  • Briefly discuss where the Communication and Language Journey fits into the integrated Communication and Language Pathway;
  • Explore practical advice and strategies to support parents and families; and
  • Consider how we can effectively target further assessments and interventions (such as WellComm, Language through Listening, Nursery Narrative and EYBIC).
