A practical training course for those of you who are parents or carers of children as they transition from primary to secondary school
If you are a parent or carer of a young person who is at or about to start secondary school, and are concerned about your child's communication, language or learning, this course is for you.
If your child finds school challenging and is struggling either socially or academically, then they may have an underlying communication difficulty. The course will help you recognise these and help you to help them, particularly, but not exclusively, with homework!
Taking this course will also provide you with:
- A wealth of information and an opportunity to share experiences with other parents and carers of children with similar communication challenges
- Practical advice and strategies which are easy to implement in your home
- Let's Talk with 10-14s workbook, a practical resource containing an abundance of tips, ideas and strategies
- Registration with OCN London to enable you to achieve accreditation at level 1 (accredited courses only)
You'll be taught over five two-hour sessions. These are available via Zoom as well as direct face-to-face teaching. The content of both is exactly the same, just the delivery method is different. These are fun and interactive and cover a wide range of topics.
£150 plus VAT per person, excluding optional accreditation and marking.
Accreditation and marking can be purchased separately for an additional £103.00 inc. VAT.
