New Training for 2019!

This year we are introducing an additional, new range of free training for professionals working with young people with LD/ASN.  We are running 4 short sessions (2 – 3 hours long), which will focus on a single topic/theme in more depth.  See the table below for details.  These sessions will be aimed at those working with young people aged between 11 and 18.  This training is being provided in addition to our main training programme and is designed to complement and expand on the content of the full day LD/ASN module.  You can choose to come to some, all or none of these sessions.

All sessions will take place at the Astley Ainslie Hospital.  There are no prior training requirements; you do not have to have completed any of our other training modules.
