Speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) is now the most common primary type of need. It currently sits at over 1/4th of the SEND pupils with a shocking 22% children having challenges in this area. That’s over 330,000 children.


This inclusive course will empower all staff working in primary, secondary and SEND settings to develop the speech, language and communication skills of ALL children.

I can highly recommend the Phase Two Autism Training, it was brilliant. It was perfectly pitched to where we are at as a school, with both assurances for the things we are already doing, as well as in depth work around key aspects of autism and how we needed to progress.

I liked the different ideas and strategies that can be used to support the children in my setting. A lot of aspects will help me in the classroom setting.

Sara was an excellent trainer. She was very aware of our needs and responded accordingly. She pitched the talk and discussion/activities just right. As a SENDCo herself, she was able to talk from relevant and first hand experience and answered our questions with up to date knowledge. That made a real difference.

The 7 senses information was great - learning of the two other senses and how these can affect children was really useful.
