After years of phone calls, emails, personal requests, and questions on how to implement Big Write & VCOP in the 'Early Years', we are pleased to formally announce the introduction of our latest professional development session... Big Talk for Pre-Writers.
After our enormously popular forum session in May, we received greatly valued feedback and have since worked tirelessly to put together a full day professional development session focused solely on supporting children who are not yet writing. (Early Childhood / Pre-School, early Primary School years, and intervention.)
