Course Objectives

**Please use the email address for the delegate attending the course when booking a place**

1. To have a deeper understanding of young children's early Speech, Language and Communication development, with a particular focus on expressive language skills.
2. To support the identification of pupils with expressive language difficulties.
3. To develop a range of practical strategies and activities to support children with expressive language difficulties and how these can be incorporated into continuous provision and 1:1/small group activities.

Expressive language is important because it enables children to be able to express their wants and needs, thoughts and ideas, develop their use of language in writing and engage in successful interactions with others. If a child has poor expressive language skills, they might have difficulty naming items and objects, linking words together to form sentences, making themselves understood by unfamiliar people etc. This course will help you to identify children who may have expressive language difficulties and provide you with a range of practical strategies and activities to support their needs.
