Course Description

This in-depth e-learning training is available upon request to access any time.

The course is based around the ‘Language through Listening’ CD resource which delivers interventions focused on developing young children’s pre-linguistic skills. It is a great resource that delivers effective interventions to address poor listening and attention skills in children entering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and focuses on sharing key strategies to support children’s social interaction, eye-contact and turn taking.  Consolidation of these skills will aid understanding, a crucial component as children progress towards expressive language. All the activities in the ‘Language through Listening’ CD resource, help to build the foundations children require to be ready for ‘Letters and Sounds’ (Phase 1) Phonics.

Please allow one hour to complete the training.

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.

What will I learn?
