Colourful Semantics and Strategies to help a deaf child at school

August 30


This course will be of interest to teachers of the deaf, mainstream teachers, educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, support staff, and parents. To secure your place please book before the end of June.

What is Colourful Semantics? Alison Bryan (creator of Colourful Semantics) will go through the programme to enable you to deliver the intervention in school.

Colourful Semantics is the ‘meaning of the words’ and this is made colourful by breaking down and colour coding different parts of a sentence. Colourful Semantics is a speech and language therapy intervention that indirectly works on developing a child’s grammar through the use of:

  • Spoken sentences
  • Answering W/H questions
  • Use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives
  • Story telling skills
  • Written sentences and language comprehension.

You will be able to work through the programme to encourage the child to create sentences. This is initially taught by focusing on sorting out colours, which will then progress to an understanding that there are different parts that make up a sentence.

The 4 key levels are:
Level 1 – Who? The Dog. Subject -( ORANGE)
Level 2 – What doing? Is playing with. Verb – (Yellow)
Level 3 – What? The Ball. Object (Green)
Level 4 – Where? In the Garden. Location (Blue)

Presenter: Alison Bryan, Independent Speech & Language Therapist.
