    EYES 2017 Conference - 'Let's Talk About It'

    Event by EYES

    The Early Years in Education Society presents an annual professional development conference. Historically the event runs over two days and attracts 400 delegates from across Western Australian schools in the government, independent and Catholic sectors.

    Date May 19, 2017 - May 20, 2017
    Time 9:00am - 4:00pm

    The theme of the conference, ‘Let’s Talk About It’, focuses attention on the importance of developing oral language competence in the early years – for learning, the establishment of relationships and well-being. Invited speakers include speech pathologists, language specialists and teachers who have developed and implemented programs that enhance oral language. One highlight of the conference will be the opportunity to learn about Talk4Writing, a powerful 3-stage program that trains children to orally imitate the language needed for creation of a text before analysing it and innovating on it. Several presenters will address communication strategies for those with learning disorders and disabilities, while others will discuss the use of oral skills in specific Learning Areas.
