Let's Talk Communication

Event code EYC 22/165 
Event description This training, based on Every Child a Talker (ECAT) principles, has been designed to develop early years practitioners' knowledge and understanding of how babies and young children learn to communicate and talk. It considers what we need to do as adults to give them the best support possible, to impact on future school readiness and long term life chances.

This session will run as an interactive Zoom session. Delegates will be sent the link no later than 24 hours before the start date. Please ensure you are able to access Zoom at least 1 hour prior to the session. Please note that these are not recorded and therefore not available to watch at a later date and delegates need to attend as a live session.
