Speech and Language therapy (SALT)

Speech and Language therapy

The speech and language therapy department work with identified pupils who need support with their communication or eating and drinking. This may involve children who have difficulties with understanding and using language, producing intelligible speech and interacting with people around them.

Some children need an alternative system as their main method of communication or to support their speech.  This may be through the use of signing, symbols or a voice output communication aid (VOCA). Children may receive therapy individually, in a small group, through a programme carried out by school staff or by support within the classroom.
