Kerry Mulholland and CAroline Morris are two therapists who founded SMALLTALKNI, with over 40 years of clinical experience between them! We have worked with pre-school and school aged children within the health service in clinics, mainstream and special educational settings. We, and our team, provide a range of training packages, mixing theory with practical in-class support, to give early years professionals and parents the easy access to the tools and skills needed to help young children become conﬁdent communicators! We provide high quality, affordable resources for use in the class room, as whole class activities, in table top activities and in small targeted SEN settings, as well as with individual children.
As an advisory speech and language therapist I have had the opportunity to train early years staff in how best to promote speech language and communication skills in the classroom. We have developed resources which we have developed and used in nursery, P1 and P2 settings to great effect. The resources focus on developing attention and listening skills, the understanding of language, following and using questions, vocabulary development, giving and receiving instructions and phonological awareness. (Resources are for children of 3-7 years)
Kerry co- wrote a resource for use in nursery schools with Liz Elks from Elklan which has been published and reviewed favourably- continuing to sell on the ELKLAN website.
We both trained as Speech and Language Therapists at The University of Ulster in Northern Ireland, many years ago now!!
