About this event

Ellie will give you information on how best to bridge the gap in development between where children are now and where they would have been if the pandemic hadn't happened. This is an extremely important subject as the effects of the pandemic on children's development will be long term and even unborn children will have been affected through the mother's experience of the pandemic. Ellie will also cover children's foot muscle memory that has been indentified in many children post pandemic.

Ellie has a B.Ed (Hons) in Lower Primary Education (3-7 years) and a M.Ed in Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, both from Birmingham University School of Education. Her first seven years of teaching experience were spent within special schools, working with children with a range of severe to profound learning difficulties.

Topics covered

  • Some particularly key areas of development to support at this time in young children and in primary aged children
