Signing Refresher OR Phonological Awareness
November 5, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Signing Refresher with Debbie Hughes & Theresa Redmond (Playskill SLTs)
This will be mostly a practical session. We will look at why and how we can use signing to support our children’s communication and learn/practice some signs for use at home. Please let us know in advance of any topic areas or specific signs that you would find helpful and we will try to cover as many as we can in the session.
Phonological Awareness with Charlotte Kohnhorst (Teacher & Assessor of Specific Learning Difficulties)
As Phonological Awareness and Early Phonics are KEY SKILLS, parents can really help their children to build the foundations of what they will be, or are already, working on at school. This session is suitable for parents of children from 3 upwards, including those already at school who are struggling with Phonics. Phonological Awareness is all about recognising similarities in speech sounds e.g. rhyme, a vital precursor to Phonics – understanding how we represent sounds using letters.
