Speech and Language Support

What We Do

  • We provide intervention for children/young people with communication and eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.
  • We work closely with school staff, parents/carers and other professionals.
  • We provide training and support to parents/carers and school staff. With the aim for communication strategies to be embedded throughout school life and at home.

  • Advice & request support available - input into review meetings, progress reports, SALT initial or diagnostic assessments, transition support, meetings regarding new or specific concerns 
  • Social Skills group work

How to get help and support:

Referrals for support are not required, as all pupils are on our SALT register. However, additional support can be requested, with a meeting and plan put in place. Please speak to your child’s class teacher regarding concerns.
