Visit us at the Hampshire ‘Keep on Talking’ conferences

The Hampshire ‘Keep on Talking’ conferences are running on 22 February in Portsmouth and 24 February in Winchester.  I CAN will be exhibiting at both conferences giving attendees a chance to view and order some of our exciting resources, specifically designed for early years practitioners.  Our resources are designed for everyone in the early years community and support the speech, language and communication of children up to the age of 5. From birth to getting school-ready, there’s something for every age and stage of early language development.

As well as displaying resources, I CAN are also involved in other aspects of the conference. Following on from the keynote speaker’s theme of ‘Let’s get Talking! Understanding and promoting early language development’, there will be an opportunity to get to grips with ‘Working in Partnership with Parents’, as part of a workshop presented by one of I CAN’s specialist practitioners.  It will give practitioners an opportunity to learn some practical activities and strategies that can be shared with parents to enable them to support their child’s speech language and communication development in the home.

One of I CAN’s friendly speech and language therapists will also be available providing attendees  the opportunity to talk directly to a specialist about all aspects of communication development and offering information and advice to those with concerns.  The one to one slots can be booked directly on the day of the conferences by talking to someone at the I CAN stand.  More information on the conferences can be found here.
