Speech Therapy Course Summary:
The programme creator Alison Bryan will run through her Colourful Semantics approach and also provide you with inspiration for resource making in a hands on workshop as part of this full day of official training in the programme.
What is Colourful Semantics
Colourful Semantics is the ‘meaning of the words’ and this is made colourful by breaking down and colour coding different parts of a sentence. Colourful Semantics is a speech and language therapy intervention that indirectly works on developing a child’s grammar through the use of:
Answering W/H questions
Use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives
Story telling skills
Written sentences and language comprehension
You will be able to work through the Colourful Semantics programme to encourage the child to create sentences. This is initially taught by focusing on sorting out colours, which will then progress to an understanding that there are different parts that make up a sentence.
The overall aim is for the child to eventually produce grammatical and informational sentences.
