Early Help Hub East
What is an Early Help Hub Consultation? Consultation is a way of thinking through concerns relating to an individual or group of students. It offers you the opportunity to discuss these concerns directly with an Education Psychologist. Concerns may relate to any aspects of teaching, learning or behaviour etc. The approach is essentially solution orientated and aims to help you find a way of managing the situation that suits you. Why Book an Early Help Consultation? Research suggest that the consultation enables SENCos to feel supported, gain new perspectives, understandings and ideas, develop professional skills and to feel that they were meeting children's needs and working effectively with parents (Chadwick, 2014) What does a Consultation involve? Prior to the consultation take time to think about what is it you want it to be about. Use the ‘Getting the most out of your Consultation’ form as a guide. If you think it would be useful, gather together examples of work / log of incidents. Each consultation will take approximately 45 minutes and involve a discussion between the EP and the person bringing the concern. Through examining the available evidence and through discussion the precise nature of the difficulty will be established and strategies for future action will be planned. After the consultation any agreed actions should be implemented by school. A further consultation may be booked if necessary. Parental Consent You must bring signed parental consent with you to the consultation. You may also wish to consider parents accompanying you to the consultation, if you think this would be useful. Refreshments - Drinks Mid-morning Free Course - (Non attendance chargeable)

KS1 Vocabulary Interventions based on shared Storyboook Reading
Early Literacy Development is about comprehension, as well as word recognition. Therefore, it is early oral competencies, especially the depth of vocabulary knowledge and narrative skills that promote reading proficiency (Snow, Burns & Griffin, 1998). A recent literature review (Sedgwick & Stothard, 2018) has identified an evidence based intervention aimed at developing young children’s vocabulary through shared storybook reading and this is the basis of this course. The course has been designed to be interactive. Participants will be introduced to the evidence and an example of how it can be applied before developing their own based on a KS1 storybook of their choice, which they can then deliver back at school. It would be helpful if participants could bring this storybook with them to the training event. Refreshments - Drinks provided Mid-morning
