Talking and Drawing


A further part of the Well-being and Inclusion provision is our Drawing and Talking Intervention. It is formed of a series of 12 sessions which is led by the advanced trained Drawing and Talking Practitioner, Mrs V. Morgan Thompson. The provision is accessible to both KS1 and KS2, and can be in a 1:1 setting or as part of a group.



It was originally created by Dr John Allan in 1967 and has since been developed to be used in schools.

The sessions offer your child the space and time talk, in a safe environment with a trusted adult.


What does a typical session look like?

Your child will receive 12, 30-minute sessions. All talking during these sessions is centred around their drawing or a scene they have created in sand using a variety of models. They are worked at a pace set by the child.


How can my child take part in Drawing and Talking sessions?

As with other Peartree interventions, your child will be identified by the Inclusion Team, based on your child’s presenting needs. A meeting and parental permission will then be required.
