Workshops for 2019

We’ve booked some fantastic venues for four workshops coming up in the next few months. Get in touch if you want more information or want to book.

Helping children’s and young people’s voices be heard

Oral language is part of what we all do every day and plays a key role in successful participation and learning at school and in the community. It is needed to develop literacy and is also a protective factor for well-being and successful relationships. For some children and young people, talking and understanding others are challenging tasks.

Facilitated by by speech-language therapists from Talking Trouble Aotearoa NZ (TTANZ), our workshops are about listening, talking, vocabulary, getting across thoughts and ideas, expressing emotions, making friends and learning. They are designed to help you spot those children and young people with oral language difficulties and give you a toolbox of practical strategies to ensure their voices are heard during interventions designed to help them. All our workshops are interactive with case studies, practical examples, activities and videos.
