Feedback from settings
- “Courses are well run and have provided an 'eye opener' to staff into speech development and how to support this.”
- “Courses are very valuable especially since the waiting lists are so long for children to be seen by SLT, the sessions help boost children’s development and allow them to practise their speech and language whilst they are waiting for their initial assessment, the nursery have also said that children with speech and language difficulties have shown improvements since completing the courses.”
- “In terms of impact the programmes have been invaluable to the nursery and cannot be faulted”.
- “Fantastic and helped to enhance their knowledge and practice. It always gave them ways to support parents and they would like more staff to take part in the training.”
