Please note:

The default delivery will remain as remote delivery via Microsoft Teams administered by CPD@UCS. This is reflected in the content/ timings as stated. Should Government policy/University of Chester policy change we will revert to face2face delivery if/ when appropriate. 

Each school or setting will receive ONE copy of the award winning Stoke Speaks Out Early Communication Screen toolkit materials, which includes the Early Communication Record Forms and Early Communication Picture Book. Please ensure the handbooks are stored safely in your school / setting, as due to the cost of these materials, we can only send out ONE set of handbooks to each school / setting.

N.B. The toolkit materials will be posted to your school or setting and should arrive at least 2 days before the date of the training course. Please ensure you have the handbooks to reference during the session. If a member of staff in your school or setting, has already attended the training, please ask to borrow the handbooks for the training session. 

This single training event will use the ‘Stoke Speaks Out Early Communication Screen’ toolkit materials to explore:

  • The importance of children’s early language development and the need for early identification for speech / language and communication needs
  • How to screen a cohort of children and interpret the results using this screening tool
  • Strategies to further support children who are identified by the screen as being below their expected age / stage of development within Communication and Language 



•       To be familiar with the Early Communication Screen and feel confident to administer the screen in your school or setting.

•       To be confident to analyse the screening results and equipped to embed the screening into
your practice.
