All subject staff – Primary KS1/KS2

This in-person course works with staff on reflective practice and drama techniques to encourage non-verbal participation and communication in all its forms in the children with whom we work. The course also introduces participants to the Speech Bubbles methodology which uses small group drama work in an intervention for children displaying a communication need.

Participants will learn how to use drama techniques to develop children’s expressive and non-verbal communication as well as receptive and attending skills. Participants will also explore drama methodologies for inclusive practice with SEND children.

“I enjoyed learning about myself and others in the group. Putting myself into the shoes of a child to see how things we expect them to do can be challenging…. I will introduce more activities where there are no correct answers to promote communication.”

“A fantastic session to create an environment where all are comfortable to express themselves.”
