Speech Therapy Training for Schools

Training for Schools

We believe the value of training is best seen by the impact it has on teaching practice and support for children with SLCN in school. We work hard to ensure training is relevant, practical, mindful of the needs of the specific school, and that plans for follow up and maintaining momentum are discussed with senior management.


We provide training in a variety of topics including; improving vocabulary levels, helping children understand in class, and supporting children with specific needs e.g. speech disorders, selective mutism, stammering.


This involves training individuals or small staff groups within school, e.g. to set up a new intervention package, to complete screening assessments for SLCN, and to carry out therapy programmes effectively.


Elkan have developed a range of accredited courses for supporting children with SLCN. Chris is an ELKLAN tutor and currently runs the ‘Speech & Language Support for 5-11s’ course annually at our Royal College in London.

Our Feedback

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the training that you delivered on narrative skills yesterday. Angela and I both came away feeling totally inspired to make lots of new things and I am looking forward to being able to make the narrative pack a bit more exciting and personalised for my children with language needs…….It is so refreshing to get practical ways to implement speech therapy from people who know what works and also what struggles teaching assistants face when being asked to deliver programmes in schools.”
