Speech and Language Therapy
The Speech and Language Therapist, Alison Lindop, regularly works with each pupil. She currently has one day each week in school dedicated to the resource provision. Her role is crucial in assessing and monitoring pupil progress in speech and language development, the social use of language and communication skills. She discusses the needs of the pupils with the ASC team and with them sets specific targets for their individual plans. She provides programmes to be used during the week by a teaching assistant and advises how language targets can be incorporated into mainstream planning and lessons by the class teacher.
She is happy to offer support and advice to parents of children in the provision either through our home/school communication book, by telephone or by appointment.
