This new project, Parents as Partners, will support parents of children with speech and language needs in the Conwy area through our parent support groups across the county. We would like to welcome you to pop along to one of our support groups in a friendly environment to share ideas, stories and advice with other parents within the community.
The parent support groups will be held in the following venues, and will run weekly from the dates below:
- Monday 22 April 2013, 1pm-3pm, Family Support Centre, Llanrwst
- Monday 22 April 2013, 10am–12am, Ty Hapus, Llandudno
Dates and information for:
Family Support Centre, Llanrwst
Ty Hapus, Llandudno
As well as the support groups, you will have the opportunity to access free training to enable you to gain more information and learn new skills. The courses are designed to help you identify and recognise early difficulties with speech, language and communication along with strategies to promote and support the development of basic skills.
For further information please email Michelle Ridge
Worried about your child's speech and language needs? Why not pop along for a coffee and a chat with other parents and carers and our development officer, Yvonne Brookes.
Dates of meetings: every second Monday, monthly starting 13 May 2013, 10am-12
Where: The Glaslyn Leisure Centre, Porthmadog, Gwynedd
Come along and meet other parents/carers, share your experiences and information. Please contact Yvonne for further information.
Many youngsters with SLCN often find it difficult to socialise with their peers outside of school so we are looking at the possibility of setting up a Youth Club in your area to offer your child the opportunity to meet other like-minded peers with a view to build on their self-confidence and promote independence.
If you are interested in attending please contact Jeannette. Hope to see you there (NB your son/daughter does not have to attend Cwrt Sart for you to attend this meeting)
