About Word Aware

The Training

This comprehensive training has been designed to help participants translate research into practice. Led by an accredited Word Aware trainer and tenured speech-language pathologist, Aoife Mc Namara, this course provides expert guidance and practical ideas that can be immediately implemented to better support children’s vocabulary growth. 

Our Word Aware training is well-suited for classroom teachers, resource teachers, student support workers, administrators, senior leadership, speech-language pathologists, and educational psychologists. Participants can opt for online or in-person training offered as a one-day workshop or three 1.5-hour Twilight sessions.
