We offer a variety of training courses throughout the UK that are tailored to suit individual teams and/or organisations and that help them develop their services to people with communication disability.

We are committed to helping organisations embed the use of Talking Mats in their practice and offer 3 levels of bespoke training, which will include different degrees of input.

1. Training only – Talking Mats Foundation
No symbol resources are provided for the participants

2. Training with Symbol Resources – Talking Mats Foundation.
In addition to the foundation level training each participant gets a choice of one symbol set including 3 topics for each participant to use in their practice.

3. Enhanced Talking Mats training: embedding into practice
As per the foundation training with resources but in addition we provide a follow up training day to help staff reflect, refresh and extend the implementation of Talking Mats with their clients.
