Support for children in an
Early Years setting
I aim to work with a setting to support a child/children who may need extra support in Early Communication skills.
And to support Staff through strategies and training in the delivery of "Communication and Language Development ".
I offer an initial visit to discuss your requirements and to tailor the sessions to individual child/children
and settings needs.
£20.00 for an initial visit .
Followed by 1 hour sessions at £30.00 per hour
these could be for an individual child or a small group of up to 6 children.
These are a selection of activities I provide
Small group/Social Communication group
block of 4 weeks
-1 hour sessions of (4-6 children)
(+ travel @ .45p per mile over 30 miles)
Small group work really supports children to develop good listening skills, turn taking and speaking skills.
using a small group helps a child to gain confidence in using their voice, turn taking in a safe environment.
It also supports the Early Years Foundation Stage "Communication and Language "
-Listening and Attention, -Understanding - Speaking,
The session starts with a visual timetable of activities and names labels for the children.
Followed by Hello song , Singing, Story with props ,Games/activities and Goodbye song.
As a practitioner you will learn how to use pausing, commenting giving choices and modelling strategies
to enhance children's speech and language development in a small group activity.
Parents and practitioners have commented on how much the children start to change
in just a few sessions.Gaining in confidence and listening skills throughout the sessions.
