At School

The importance of communication is recognised in all areas of the National Curriculum.

A good foundation in speaking and listening forms an important part of a child's development and provides the basis from which most other learning can be developed.

If a child has any difficulties involving any aspect of communication it may affect their learning as well as their confidence and ability to form friendships.

A child's speech, language and interaction can be encouraged in a variety of ways, making use of strategies as well as more specific activities.

The links on this site are intended to help guide you, as teacher, in:

  • Identifying children with speech, language and interaction difficulties.
  • Learning more about a child's difficulties in speech, language and interaction and possible strategies that can be used to help in the classroom.
  • Learning about the roles of other professionals who may support the child's development of speech, language and interaction.


How to refer school aged children

School teams are required to complete Request for Involvement Form and discuss with their link therapist.  If there are concerns about the child's language development, it is recommended that the Language Screening be completed. If there are concerns about the child's speech sound development, it is recommended that the Speech Screen Pictures and Record Form be completed.
