VDEI presented ELKLAN speech and literacy support workshops to educational support staff who provide oral language and literacy support to deaf students on Monday 30 January 2012 and Wednesday 29 February 2012.

Presenter Helen Harrington-Johnson, experienced speech pathologist, audiologist and accredited ELKLAN trainer presented the workshops.

One of the participants, Rachel Georgesz, integration aide at St Mary’s College for Hearing Impaired Students, said: “The information I learned in this course is very relevant to the work that I am doing with the children. It gave me a clearer understanding of their hearing issues and gave me tools and strategies to better help them connect with their education and utilise the soundfield equipment more productively. As I am very new to this field, I am pleased to have had this opportunity to learn such a wealth of information at the start of this aspect of my career.”

Due to popular demand, we will be running more workshops later in the year. If you are interested in taking part, please email vdei@edumail.vic.gov.au
