Content and supplementary material


How will you use what you have learned today?

Cascade info to staff. Consider how to upskill staff using info.
Use it with a lot of my patients/clients and give feedback to my colleagues and train them.
In-service delivery to central support service staff and mainstream primary/early years. Pupil Assessment.
I intend to do more reading on the development of narrative in young children and familiarise myself with resources, assessments, websites recommended by presenter.
I will translate some of the given material and share it with other speech and language therapists in Slovenia. Ideas are great!
Share with colleagues. Listen/watch more closely what the children are telling me and use more open questioning/statements to encourage narratives.
