Overview

There is a real need for teachers, speech therapists and psychologists who understand the close connections between language and literacy.

This course is designed to expand your theoretical knowledge and teach you new skills.

Some of the world’s leading researchers teach on the course. We have strong links with the NHS, special schools and specialist charities.

If you’re based in Sheffield, there are opportunities for clinical observation with speech and language therapy clients.
