Speech and Language

We run Speech and Language 1:1 or group session five days a week in school and work with select children from reception class through to year six. These group sessions last from ten minutes to half an hour a week depending on the children’s age and level of need. The groups are put together so that we have a small group of children of a similar age together and we see each group once a week.

The speech and language groups are for children who require some extra support with their speech, language and understanding. For these sessions activities are planned around the children’s targets from the speech and language therapist and anything that the teachers, or sometimes parents of the child, feel that they may need some work on.
