Delivered by an educational psychologist, this is a one day workshop for teachers and speech and language therapists on children’s cognition and learning. Suitable for professionals supporting children with hearing loss, or other language and communication difficulties – explore cognition: non-verbal abilities, verbal reasoning, processing speed and memory.  Learn how understanding this can help us develop a richer understanding of individual children. How children approach learning is vital for long term success.  This understanding helps decide the best way forward for a child.  We’ll consider the role of learning and memory in communication and the need for early identification of cognitive difficulties. You’ll recognise and practice useful ways to assess cognition in children and practical strategies to support difficulties at home and in school
