Time:  10 a.m till 2.30 pm ( Gipfelis served from 9.30 am)

Cost: Approx. 35sfr. – 40 sfr. per person (including lunch)

Details: All the educational research stresses that when it comes to possible learning challenges the earlier these are identified the better. Yet nowhere is this a more sensitive issue than in the early years. How and when do we let parents know that their child may need additional support and / or an external evaluation?

This one-day workshop will focus on some of the challenges faced by children in the early years.

These are:  Language – including early reading skills; Sensory and Motor Skills; Attention; Behaviour.

Together we will: Identify signs of a possible difficulty in one of these areas; Look at screening checklists and assessments; Discuss ways we share information with parents; Think about when we bring in outside agencies and how we prepare parents.

Please let me know by Monday 21st October if you or any of your colleagues are interested in attending this workshop.
