This workshop will look at practical approaches to communicating with parents regarding children’s development and behaviours. This workshop will also address ways in which to present Aim supports to parents in order to create an understanding as to how to best support their child through the preschool years.
Following the workshop (Glenview event only), in advance of the opening of applications for the LINC course this March, a tutor from the Leadership for INClusion in the Early Years programme will be hosting an information session. LINC is a free (fully funded) higher education blended-learning programme designed for early years teachers, to promote the inclusion of children with additional needs. After completing the programme, graduates will carry out the role of Inclusion Coordinator and will also meet the educational requirement for room leader status. Once a qualified graduate is working within an early years setting as the INclusion COordinator, the setting will be entitled to an extra capitation payment of €2 per ECCE/CCS/TEC qualified child. Further information about the programme can be found by visiting the LINC programme website www.lincprogramme.ie.
The information session will cover topics such as; the programme overview & structure, eligibility, the online application process, using the online learning platform and feedback from previous participants.
