Delivered by members of the Soundswell special schools team Denise & Jo 30+ staff spent a half-day session learning how to find out exactly what levels of language children in school really understand.  No more guesswork as staff can be confident that their assessments are accurate.

The training covered key points such as:

  • Why it’s important to identify a child’s level of understanding
  • Choosing children to screen
  • principles of assessment
  • all about information-carrying words (ICWs)
  • hints and tips when screening
  • trouble-shooting

Feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive click here for the feedback summary

A big thank you to staff at the Bridge for being ‘SSLEUTHS guinea pigs’
