Woodland Speech and Language School

 

Rewilding Your Child, The Value of Nurturing Communication Skills in the Natural Environment

I am in the process of developing a:

‘Woodland Speech and Language School’

And also

‘Speech on the Beach’  Coastal Speech and Language Sessions for Children.

Please contact me to express an interest if you are an Early Years or Education Provider or Forest School Leader

With 25 years  experience in NHS paediatric Speech and Language Therapy,  I have seen how the indoor learning environment and increase in screen time has been a major factor in a decline in learning and communication skills in children over the years.

I am passionate about the outdoors and have always included in my programmes of activity for parents and schools, a reference to the importance of hands-on  practical learning opportunities and outdoor activities to nurture child development and communication skills.

I live in Ferryside , Carmarthenshire and  have been fortunate enough to be able to bring my children up in this beautiful natural environment where I also spent my childhood exploring the beach and surrounding woodlands.

After all of these years in an NHS clinic I am keen to become more involved in the nurturing of communication skills in children,  in the context of the therapeutic outdoors.
