Helen found this great article on how to make school plays deaf friendly from the NDCS.  So we thought we would write about how to make plays and assemblies more accessible for children with speech and language difficulties.  Every child should be included; you just might to think laterally about a few things!

How to use… a box
How’s your Christmas shopping going?  Better than mine, I hope!  I always refuse to think about it until December and then panic that I will never get it done in time!…  Whatever is on your Christmas shopping list this year, I can pretty much guarantee that something you will end up with in the house on Christmas Day is empty boxes!  An [...]

Blogfest and 2 years blogging

Blogfest and 2 years blogging
On Saturday, Elizabeth and I attended Blogfest – an annual event run by Mumsnet for people who have blogs. Our blog is not a “mum blog” by which I mean that we don’t really blog much about being parents. However, they still let us in (!) and it was great to spend a day thinking about blogging, listening to great speake [...]

Top tips …… for using bonfire night to develop language skills!
I love this time of year, except the getting dark really early bit!  There are so many different things happening that prove to be great opportunities for discussion with children.  We have just had Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night is only a few days away and then before you know it, Christmas will arrive!  Then you also have the currently [...]
