Did you know that "8-16% of 11-16 year olds in secondary schools have SLCN"?(McLeod & McKinnon, 2007) and in certain areas of the UK, up to 75% of young people in secondary schools may have limited language (I CAN, 2011).
We know that "speech, language and communication are closely linked to behaviour, attainment, how young people interact with their peers and how they feel about themselves." (Communication Trust) but also that services are extremely disparate.
Taking place over three consecutive Wednesdays, this total training package enables learners to feel more confident when supporting students with SLCN both within the classroom and for targetted interventions. Learners will build their knowledge and understanding of the links between language and learning and also develop their skills in fine tuning their own communication styles in order to increase progress, motivation and independence.
Identify and understand the complex skills that work together to facilitate the development of robust language skills and how this applies to the Secondary curriculum.
Understand the links between SLCN, behaviour and mental health.
Identify core strategies that work across all aspects of SLCN.
Understand how different aspects of SLCN can present in different ways and plan support for three "real" students.
