Nower Hill has organised a practical training course 'Let’s Talk with 10-14s' for Year 7 parents wanting some key skills and knowledge.
The course provides information about the development of language and communication, how to recognise difficulties with speech, language and communication and how to support children as they move from primary to secondary school. It gives ‘Helpful Hints’ with ideas to promote different aspects of communication with a special section on supporting young people with their homework.
