When we can all meet again – How to arrange a local NDP3 Training Course

In addition to scheduled and private online training, we offer local face-to-face training courses for speech and language professionals.

We are happy to arrange courses on request for groups of 15-30 therapists.

We offer one- or two-day workshops, running from 0930 to 1630. Starting and finishing times can be amended if required.

A sample timetable is shown in the linked document below. A one-day course will typically include shorter sessions on theory, assessment, differential diagnosis and treatment.

What SLTs and SLPs are saying about Pam’s NDP3 Training …

Here’s some of the feedback we received from our courses in 2020:

“The course was well structured and methodical. It was clear how to immediately incorporate the content in practice”

“The structure – very clear and each piece built on the next”

“The video examples, generosity with resources and the slick platform for accessing resources”

“The mix of information, video and specific examples; very enjoyable course”

“Online delivery!! Pam did a great job at being engaging via Zoom”

“Good re-cap of DVD/CAS and reference to other sources of information; reference to the evidence base; video examples; opportunity to ask questions and discuss cases”

“The presenter was engaging and the notes and videos provided an in-depth overview of the content”

“The presenter was knowledgeable, clear and practical”

“I’m so grateful for these online learning opportunities. Thank you for having such great speakers and evidence-based approaches to build our expertise. It helps to boost my confidence in my skills during these difficult times”

“It was very well structured and supported with great handouts and video examples”

“Presenter was extremely experience and knowledgeable, useful content, lots of supporting resources and information, chance to ask questions at the end”

“Presenter – Pam is great”

“It was a great refresher on assessment and differential diagnosis and was a really good detailed introduction to planning and carrying out therapy using the Nuffield approach”

“The information was presented very clearly and explained thoroughly. I now have new tools to improve the quality of my practice when working with this client group”

“It was hard to just list three things I liked as the course was so beneficial. It was reassuring to find that my current state of knowledge re. differential diagnosis was sound but I feel much more confident now. I will also be able to plan therapy for these children in a more structured way and hopefully demonstrate progress clearly to parents/carers”

“The course was very useful and clear in explaining how the Nuffield materials can be used. Pam was a fantastic presenter”

“People from all over the world attending! Great to hear how things work in different countries, different assessments, resources etc. Pam delivered the material at pace that was calm and easy to process, not rushed at all. It felt very informal and I didn’t feel intimidated to ask questions. Clear goals for each module”

“Very easy to follow; I felt comfortable asking questions; It was very informative”

“Pam is so knowledgeable about the area that it was really helpful when she was explaining things”

“Thank you this was a really helpful course, and the fact it could be offered online meant it was very accessible in terms of travel and time commitment”
