What to expect

Training families and carers

Our speech and language therapists offer a training service for the families and carers of individuals with speech, language and communication needs. We also provide training for families and carers of individuals with eating and drinking difficulties.

What type of training does speech and language therapy provide for families and carers?

Our speech and language therapists will provide training packages to suit the specific needs of the families or carers. Our training packages can cover any aspect of speech, language and communication. Common speech and language therapy training for families and carers include:

  • Communication skills in pre-school children.
  • Speech and language development in pre-school children.
  • Parent and child interaction.
  • Facilitating communication.
  • Eating, drinking and swallowing management.
  • Our training packages focus on providing education and skills on how best to support children and adults with speech, language and communication needs.

    Our training packages will increase the knowledge and understanding of families and carers and provide them with the skills for them to communicate as effectively as possible with the individual with speech, language and communication difficulties.

    What will training involve for families and carers?

    Our speech and language therapists are flexible when delivering training packages. Training packages will be tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the families and carers. The content, location and length of time of each training package will vary depending on the specific needs of the family / carers.

    Our speech and language therapists will provide families and carers with information, ideas and strategies that they can use in communicating as effectively as possible with individuals with speech, language and communication difficulties.
