Online Parent and Child Interaction Workshops

Lay the foundation for your child's communication skills for life

For Parents of Newborns to 2 year olds

This is a unique opportunity to learn about the best ways to enhance your child's speech, language and communication skills.  You will gain knowledge and practical strategies to enable you to provide the best quality of interaction to your child.  Having effective speech, language and communication skills is so crucial in life.  These workshops lay the foundations for your child's future communication success. 

These workshops are based on the latest research around child speech, language and communication development.  They will be run by two knowledgeable, experienced and very approachable Speech and Language Therapists - Nadine Prescott and Kyra Portis.

Group size will be kept small at around 10 - 15 families.  This will allow for us to get to know you and for questions to be asked throughout.

Online sessions are a very convenient and cost effective way of learning new skills to help your child.  Learn from the comfort of your own home without having to rush to get to a venue! We are holding the workshops in the evening in the hope that more than one parent or family member will be able to attend.  Often this sort of training is just attended by one parent, usually a mum.  We hope by doing evening, online sessions that more than just one person in your family can attend.
