Training and Professional Development

Lucia Smith from Pelican Talk runs training in a variety of topics.  She also presents training sessions previously run by Love and Reilly.

Participants in Lucia's sessions receive easy-to-follow information that can be easily put into practice. Information is based on current research. Most sessions come with loads of free resources.

An underlying theme in Lucia's training is to have participants experience what it is like to have a speech, language or literacy difficulty.  Only in truly understanding our children, can we know what will assist them in their learning.
