Speech & Language for Early Years
We understand the importance of providing all children with a solid foundation in the early years to help them achieve the best start in life.
Speech & Language for Primary School
‘More than half of children starting education in socially deprived areas of England have delayed language, while their cognitive abilities are in the average range for their age’ (Gascoigne,2012)
Speech & Language for Secondary School
Did you know……Children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs perform significantly lower than their peers at GCSE’s (DfE GCSE results, 2016)
Speech & Language for Specialist Provision (0-25)
Speech, language and communication needs continues to be the most prevalent special educational need. We believe that access to specialist communication support is essential for our young students to reach their full potential
Speech & Language for Families
Current research estimates that 1 in 10 children may experience speech and language difficulties. We work in partnership with parents and education staff to help children achieve their full potential.
