Finding a course


‘Language for Thinking, Word Aware and Language for Behaviour and Emotions’ courses bring the content of the books to life in a highly practical way. They take the content off the page and show participants how to use these approaches in their school or workplace. All of the courses are run in workshop style, providing expert guidance but also lots of practical ideas to implement right away. Participants will leave each workshop with a clear idea of how to better support the children and young people they work with.

‘Language for Thinking’ and ‘Language for Behaviour and Emotions’ courses require access to the book during the course.
‘Word Aware’ courses require some access after the course. Generally 2 to 4 copies per school for ‘Word Aware 1’ an one copy per school for ‘Word Aware 2’ and ‘Word Aware 3’ is adequate.

For details about each approach please refer to the relevant pages on this website.
