Barnet CIT Parent and Carer Training Sessions - Spring and Summer Term 2021


Barnet Children’s Integrated Therapies have been pleased with the response to our Universal training programme offered from across our integrated therapies – Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy in the Autumn term 2020. We are delighted to share the revised offer with education settings, parents and professionals for Spring and Summer terms 2021. 


We have one or two exciting new training sessions, which we know will be very popular, and we have opened out many of our trainings to parents/carers.


We will continue to run the training sessions virtually as this makes them more accessible for parents and staff to attend. There is no cost to you, we only ask for your participation and to fill in the online survey afterwards. The objectives for each course are listed on the second tab of the attached spreadsheet.
