A practical training course for those of you who would like to learn how to take children through an effective therapy programme to help them speak clearly
About the course
This course is for those of you who are working with children and young people whose speech is unclear. The pupil you are working with needs to have a SaLT assessment, then you will be guided through the implementation of a speech programme with them. Our online resource, Sound Builders, provides you with step by step guidance which you can also share with families.
We offer both face-to-face and online training. Both cover the same superb content and are taught by our experienced Elklan Tutors using interactive teaching methods, practical activies, videos and group discussions.
Face-to-face courses are delivered over two consecutive days with a half day session eight weeks later (this may be delivered via webinar).
The online training runs over 3 weekly webinars, with a further one-hour webinar eight weeks later.
Whichever delivery model you choose, you will complete a learning log which details the therapy you provide the pupil. If you work with a child over 4 years of age who has delayed speech sound development, then this course is for you!
Whilst it is advisable that you complete a core Elklan course first, this is not a requirement.

The biggest praise for the course is from the child’s perspective, the child was more than happy to do the activities and frequently expressed how much they enjoyed them and asked to do them again, other children also expressed an interest in having a go at them. With the activities appealing to the children that we want to work with it makes them keener to do an activity when asked and less of a chore, they are far more likely to be successful doing something they enjoy as they are more likely to out the effort in. This has been reflected in the progress they have made.I am really pleased to be able to do this course and feel that I and the school are in a far better position to help a child with speech and language while we await outside Speech and Language help.

Great course, very informative and the sound builders programme is simple and enjoyable to follow.

A very informative course that will support me to meet a significant need within school. The pupil and I both enjoyed the sessions and he is more confident as he has been able to notice the progress he has made.

I found this course so beneficial and helpful. I have carried out interventions for a long time but have always relied on support from outside speech and language therapists in regards to ideas, resources, activities, understanding. I now feel much more confident than ever before and feel able to support other people with my knowledge and understanding of children with unclear speech
