Communication and Interaction Needs

Communication and Interaction needs. 

Children and young people might:

  • struggle to talk or say what they want to
  • find it hard to understand what other people are saying
  • find conversations and play confusing or challenging

Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Children with Speech and Language difficulties are supported in the classroom by additional adult support and strategies and guidance provided by our SENCo. The school has a positive and effective working partnership with our NHS Mainstream Speech Therapist who provides programmes and therapy to children within the school.  In addition to this, the school provides speech and language support using the Nuffield early Language Intervention for children who meet the criteria.

Children who have been diagnosed with ASD or diagnosed with social and communication difficulties are supported through our SENCo, Speech and Language Therapist and through quality first teaching within the classroom.
