    This online course on the SHAPE CODINGTM system is for professionals and parents interested in learning more about this system which aims to help teach children with language disorders the grammar of English. The course takes 6-10 hours to complete, which you can spread out as you wish. Those who have completed it have said it is better to spread it out rather than try to do it in one day. Access to the course will normally last for six months.

    This course is available continuously, but the trainers will only be available to give personalised feedback at certain times of the year. Thus, you can take a course at any time, but can only receive your certificate of completion following a period when the trainers are available. The next weeks when the trainers are available are:

    • 24th-28th February
    • 16th-20th March

    If you have any difficulties outside these times, please email or use the forum within the course. 

    For a face-to-face version of this course, please see here.

    Course participants are not permitted to run courses on the SHAPE CODINGTM  system following this course (further courses are required to become a trainer) and will be required to sign an agreement to this effect before commencing the course.

    UK course participants may, if they wish, also purchase the SHAPE CODINGTM app at a discounted rate once they are inside the course.
