Working with Schools
Working with school staff to ensure a shared understanding of SLCN and best practice whole school and teaching approaches.
Identifying pupils’ specific speech and language levels and priority areas for support.
Supporting school staff to deliver intervention packages and providing specialist intervention (‘therapy’) to children with high need.
How We Help
Around 10% of children have significant speech, language and communication needs. In some areas, particularly those with high levels of social deprivation, 50% or more children have lower than expected levels of speech and language on school entry.
We work with schools to;
– Identify the pupils most at need.
– Develop a range of interventions to improve pupils’ communication skills.
– Help implement in-class adaptations to support children learn more easily and effectively.
– Explore targeted and whole school approaches to improving children’s communication levels.
