PARENT TRAINING

As parents ourselves, we understand the desire to know as much about your child’s development as possible. At Communicate we have devised a number of training programs to assist parents in furthering their knowledge about speech and language development and useful strategies for promoting communication.

Our programs can cater to any number of parents and can be held in any location across Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra or Melbourne. For more information or to organise a parent training session for your parent group please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you are interested in our parent or teacher training programs or other services please feel free to contact us on 02 9328 3444 or via our contact form.

TEACHER TRAINING

Communicate Speech Pathology has a strong commitment to partnering with teachers to ensure that clients are well supported in their educational setting and that therapy goals are generalised to the classroom environment.

Educating teachers about the importance of communication development and equipping them with the skills necessary to identify and manage speech and language difficulties in the classroom is vital to the child’s ongoing success.

Communicate offers a range of professional development courses for teachers covering various topics. We have had the opportunity to train over 250 teaching staff from day care centres, pre-schools and schools across Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra and Melbourne. Together we have achieved a better outcome for hundreds of children.

Examples of our teacher training sessions include:

  • Normal speech and language development
  • Identifying speech and language disorders in the classroom
  • Identifying and targeting deficits in social skills in the classroom
  • Managing Communication disorders in the classroom
  • Alternative and augmentative communication techniques
