Thank you for a very inspiring day. I thoroughly enjoyed it, with practical suggestions for both reflective and improving practice” Anne-Marie, SALT Lincs
Returning by popular demand a one day conference for Teachers of the Deaf and Speech & Language Therapists: look at the benefits and challenges of assessing children from birth to sixteen.
Children with hearing loss are a diverse population. As well as deafness, many have a range of challenges that affect learning. How do you identify these challenges in such a complex population, whose role is it and how do we collaborate with parents?
Our keynote speaker Dr Isabel Gregory is a rare find. An educational psychologist with over 25 years experience of working with children with hearing loss.
Deafness is not a learning disability, yet many children will have delayed cognition in addition to their hearing loss. She’ll explore aspects of cognition including memory, pattern perception and recall. How children approach learning is vital for long term success and understanding this, helps define the best way forward for a child.
- Understand the role of an Educational Psychologist, the assessments they use, formally and informally and recognize when referral is appropriate
- Explain the role of learning and memory in communication and the need for early identification of cognitive difficulties.
- List reasonable adjustments for assessments
- Describe ways professionals can collaborate for success
- Recognise the emotional impact of assessment on families
And something for everyone in our choice of workshops :
