Attending the GOSH language profiles course

GOSH language profiles

A few members of the SBT Team were at today’s GOSH’s Language Profiles in Children with Neurodevelopmental Conditions course.

This one-day course was presented by SLTs working in the neurodisability department at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and was aimed at SLTs working with children and young people in early years, mainstream and specialist settings.

The course was designed to encourage delegates to:

  • Broaden their knowledge of complex speech and language profiles associated with neurodevelopmental conditions (topics covered included: epilepsy, language disorder, movement disorder and ASD).
  • Share best practice around methods of assessment and formulation and how these can guide long-term management.
  • Consider the role of the multi-disciplinary team in assessing children and young people with neurodevelopmental conditions.
  • Network with SLT colleagues to access peer support.

The whole team found it really beneficial and look forward to putting their learning into practice!
