Speech and Language
At Castledon School, we believe that every student should be supported to achieve their potential with communication development and independence. Our Speech and Language Therapist works closely with class teams to support speech, language, communication and play development within their individual classes. This service complements the NHS Speech and Language Therapy Service who oversee any Speech and Language outcomes on an EHCP. Our vision is to provide holistic support for our students via our multi-disciplinary team.
Our Speech and Language Therapist is involved in monitoring class progress and supports teachers by reviewing outcomes and meeting with phase leaders to discuss strategies and identify next steps. Whole school strategies are linked into the Academy Development Plan.
Our Speech and Language Therapist advises and supports not only our teaching staff but also our families at our coffee mornings. Supporting parents to understand and integrate strategies at home will enable functional skills to be developed at school and beyond.
