How to contact this service
Speech and Language Link empower SENCos, teachers and TAs in their work with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) to ensure that every child is supported in realising their full potential. They do this through a range of online, speech and language packages which include assessments and interventions, and staff training and support. Each package is tailored to a different age range, from reception to year 9 and are available to schools via annual subscriptions.
The assessments are standardised and the 1:1 and small-group interventions accompanied by video guides presented by our Spech and Language Therapists (SaLTs) . They are contactable throughout the year through the Help Desk for direct support on using their assessments and interventions. Packages are universal in that they support schools and their SaLT teams by providing a quick and easy way to assess all students. This enables early identification of SLCN and ensures that no student, even those with milder difficulties, falls under the radar and that those identified with severe needs, receive timely SaLT referrals. Interventions and whole-class teaching strategies and lesson plans are designed around a ‘whole-school approach’, to develop the speech, language and communication skills and raise the attainment of all students, especially those who would not usually meet the SaLT referral criteria.
Speech and Language Link’s aim is for all schools to have access to up-to-date SLCN information and resources for staff and families. In addition to the packages, they offer SLCN information and advice via a termly magazine ‘The Link’, a monthly newsletter, blog-posts and termly staff training webinars
