Course Description

This online training course is based around the 'Language through Listening' CD resource. This great resource delivers effective interventions that address poor listening and attention skills in children entering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This session underpins 'Letters and Sounds' (Phase 1).

As part of the course, a pre-recorded in-depth training video will be issued for you to view prior to this session which focusses on sharing key strategies to support children's pre-linguistic development and the use of the 'Language through Listening' CD resource. This one hour interactive session will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

What will I learn?

The session will focus on the use of the 'Language through Listening' CD resource pack and delivers interventions focused on developing eye contact, turn taking and listening and attention skills. The online training will cover the foundations of communication and language development in young children and additional videos will share how to deliver the practical activities.

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Have improved knowledge of attention and listening skills;
  • Know how to improve children's eye contact, turn taking, listening and attention skills and how to develop early sound awareness;
  • Be able to carry out communication and language development interventions on a 1:1 basis or group to support children's pre-linguistic skills; and
  • Make effective use of the Early Years Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Grant.

Delegates can purchase a copy of the high quality 'Language through Listening' CD resource.  This comprehensive pack concentrates on the development of the pre-linguistic skills required to develop expressive language.  This resource is sold separately, priced at £81.60 including VAT.

This resource contains different activities which focus on developing listening and attention, turn taking, eye contact, identifying sounds, sound location, language based listening and listening and expressive language. This bank of activities complements and supports the skills which children need to move onto the ‘Letters and Sounds’ (Phase 1).

A bespoke package of support is also available, including a follow-up visit to support implementation of the training.  Please contact us for more details.
