Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are trained to work with children who find it difficult to talk, communicate and understand language.
Our school’s SLT is Jodie.
Jodie delivers STL to help with:
Social communication difficulties – helping students learn good listening, eye contact, body language and social skills etc
Speech sound difficulties – helping students to produce clearer speech.
Language difficulties – helping pupils to understand and express themselves.
Feeding difficulties – helping pupils increase their tolerance to different tastes and textures.
It is important to note that speech and language therapy does not cure children’s communication difficulties. It helps them to become the best communicators they can be so that they can communicate and understand others, make friends and learn at school.
