This updated early intervention course will be delivered in 2 parts.

Part 1 will be delivered virtually starting in October 2021 and will be the equivalent of 3 days of education time.  There will be an initial ‘real-time day' via zoom, followed by a series of presentations available remotely and regular tutorials with course tutors online. 

Part 2 will consist of 3 days in February 2022 at Cerebral Palsy Cymru, Cardiff, Wales and will focus on translating acquired knowledge into practical skills working with babies/infants and their families with guidance and support from the course tutors.
