On Monday 19th June, two of our therapists, Hannah and Zoe, attended the 3rd East Region SEND Show run by AcornTree Psychology and Consultancy Services. We had a great day, meeting lots of new faces, as well as catching up with others!
Hannah delivered a jam-packed 45 minute talk to an enthusiastic group of delegates. The talk, “Why did you do that?” Exploring the Link Between Behaviour and SLCN, looked at why children with SLCN may also have difficulties with behaviour, social and emotional development. The session was very interactive, allowing everyone to share their thoughts on what a child’s behaviour may look like if they have difficulties with various areas of speech, language and communication, across a range of ages.
We were very impressed by Mighty Writer who attended on the day, giving us a demonstration of their brand new resource! Mighty Writer transforms the way children learn to write – enabling children of all ages and abilities to become independent, confident and capable writers. It simplifies the traditionally complex process of learning to write. It does so in a manner that inspires children of all abilities; nurturing the skills of speech, story planning and writing. Although it is set up for writing, we think it would also be great to develop all sorts of verbal language skills!
Thank you to AcornTree PCS for organising another great day and we look forward to attending next year! (Oh, and so do Francis and Fred!)
