Speech Therapists as Learning Whisperers
- Rewiring Dyslexic Brains in the Early Years

Please use the 6 week program before they start a phonic program, and especially if it is a Validated DfE Systematic Synthetic phonics programme. 

What happens?

You'll need the ICRWY Code in a Box Kit with extra A3 Coding Posters (1 per child) and the ICRWY Lessons app *  or school version of the app if your education department blocks the ICRWY Lessons app (there are lessons hosted by vimeo) 

Use the online Learning Whisperer training for Speech Pathologists. 

There is free post training support - a new group will be launched specifically for speech therapists. 

During the 6 week program with your clients you will learn whether they are at risk of literacy difficulties (eg dyslexia) and what to do about it. You will also understand what EVERY child needs, and know if they are getting it or not. 

*Lessons app - we will start at Phase 1 - using the Monster Mapping Kit Handbook
