Return to Early Intervention Sessions Jan 2021(postponed)

Updated: Jan 27, 2021

We were looking forward to to be in a position to begin our phased reopening from January 2021, starting with Individual Early Intervention Sessions. We have so missed having children visit the centre and understand the importance that Early Intervention provides children and their families with the support and information they need to promote growth and development but unfortunately due to current covid19 restrictions, we do not feel it is appropriate to open for face-to-face sessions currently.

The Early Intervention programme targets speech and language, fine motor skills, gross motor skills & social skills (in group settings). It is suitable for preschool aged children. We will be commencing with individual sessions, with a view to getting back to small group settings after an initial introductory period.

What happens in the sessions?

Free play, circle time, structured play, oral and gross motor skills

What programmes and resources are used?

Lámh, Numicon, See and Learn Language sets, Handwriting without Tears

Who runs the sessions?

Louise is our Early Intervention Teacher. She is a Behaviour Analyst who has completed her Masters in Applied Behaviour Analysis and is currently studying towards Board Certification. She has over 10 years experience working with children with additional needs, both in the home and as part of a multidisciplinary team. Louise is trained as a Lámh Family Tutor and has experience working with Numicon, Handwriting without Tears and See and Learn

Session details:

Sessions happen weekly, and you commit to sign up to a term in advance. The cost remains at €15 per session and each session will have approximately 45 minutes of tutoring, plus 15 minutes of additional time (new signing in process, children’s coats/bags and providing feedback afterwards etc.).

How can I sign up and/or find out more information?
