Training and Development

“It was a very fun training day full of information. I now feel confident I can begin to sign with children and staff to build my abilities to communicate”

We offer a range of bespoke courses for professionals, parents and carers. Training can be delivered at The Hamlet or at your setting.

Our trainers are highly experiences and qualified, they are also practitioners working day to day with children and adults with a range of disabilities and complex health needs.
