To access this course you will need to have an adequate level of English to: - Express your opinions and feelings - Follow discussions and make relevant contributions - Make use of handouts with assitance if necessary Before joining the class you will need an advisory session (free of charge) with one of the Speech Therapy team.

Work will be undertaken both in the whole group and smaller sub-groups using a wide variety of communication activities.
