Early Years Practitioners
• Increase knowledge and understanding of how communication and attachment relationships develop from birth
• Share the Let’s Talk Together Traffic Light System of Positive Interaction
• Watch and analyse video footage of how these key interaction strategies can be used effectively to develop the emotional health and communication skills of all children
• Reflect on how settings are already supporting the development of communication skills and emotional health and identify an area that could be improved
This informative, interactive course is split into two remote learning sessions:
Positive Interaction - Session 1
It’s all about you - Developing a shared understanding of why the positive interactions a child experiences from birth play such an important role in their future as well as taking a moment to reflect on the impact of not having enough positive interactions.
Positive interaction strategies in practice - What are the PI strategies, and can we identify them being used?
Positive Interaction - Session 2
It’s not all talk - Understanding communication development as a pyramid of skills.
Being a clear model - Through analysing more video footage, practitioners will be supported to look again at key positive interaction strategies in more detail and identify the positive impact they have on young children and the quality of their learning experience.
Time to reflect
Participants will have an opportunity to reflect and identify a key area for developing positive interaction in their own practice.
