Studies show that, with the right support, children with learning difficulties have every chance of success at school. This week, the classroom was the focus for TALI Health’s Dr Hannah Kirk when she conducted a workshop on attention and learning for parents and teachers at St Joseph’s Primary School, Malvern.

Encouraging collaboration between parents and teachers, Dr Kirk discussed different types of attention used in everyday life, along with strategies to identify attention difficulties in children and the ways they can be supported in the classroom.

St Joseph’s Primary School recently participated in a Monash University Research Trial to assess the benefits of TALI Train in typically developing children. The Trial also aimed to study the effectiveness of TALI Train in school environments.

Commenting on the success of the workshop, Dr Kirk said, “I was delighted that so many parents and teachers braved a cold winter’s night to attend the workshop, and with how excited they were to learn more about TALI Train. Some of the attendees had experience with our program through the Research Trial and I was very pleased to hear of the benefits they observed in their children, particularly in numeracy, at the completion of TALI Train.”

“A big thank you to St Joseph’s Primary School’s teachers, parents and students for their support. Your involvement is crucial in advancing our path towards evidence based approaches to support development and learning in childhood.”
