Cambridgeshire - Introduction to Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Ref: C2228855

In this short, introductory course, we will consider what is meant by speech, language and communication and the related functions of attention and memory. A brief overview of typical child language development will be followed by a focus on children's speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) both in the home and school setting. We will be discussing how SLCN impact on learning and ways that we can support children and young people with these difficulties. Having considered how children learn new words, we will look at practical ways to support vocabulary development. Finally, we will discuss social communication difficulties and how we can help children to develop their ability to interact effectively with others.
