Speech and Language Therapy 

Hi Everyone,

We are the Speech and Language Therapy team that work in school and closely with teaching staff to discuss and model communication strategies and advice that can be implemented within the classroom. We may do some individual assessments of children, and set specific targets and advice.

We work using a Total Communication approach, meaning that we support children’s communication using a range of strategies, including;

  • Visual displays
  • PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System)
  • Workstations
  • Makaton
  • Objects of Reference


We are available to contact for any advice/ strategies throughout the year – either contact us on 01922 605400, or please let the class teacher know.


Thank you very much,

Suzanne, David and Amy
