Event code EYC 20/101 
Event description This course can be taken without having completed Early Years Practitioner Training or any of the other Foundation Stage Language for Learning courses.
This is licensed training delivered by a Language for Learning accredited trainers who are speech and language therapists and specialist teachers. This ½ day session is based on the work done by the Hanen Centre (US) and Keena Cummins, SLT based in the UK.
There is clear evidence about the impact of adult child interaction style on children’s language development – early years practitioners can make a significant difference to children’s development by adopting the principles discussed today.
It is important that early year’s settings offer an environment that is sensitive and conducive to language learning. This includes the style of talking, the way adults listen and the opportunities available in the setting for speaking and listening.
Training objectives Practitioners will:
• Understand the importance of adult child interaction
• Have reflected on their own style of interaction
• Understand what it means to let the child lead and become a tuned in partner
• Have considered everyday routines and opportunities to develop language and communication skills
• Have considered you’re their own setting and the opportunities available
• Be ready to have a go at becoming a tuned in partner
