For Schools

Effective Speech and Language Therapy services are based on forming a strong relationship with a child’s school. 

More than 10% of children and young people have long-term speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) which create barriers to communication or learning in everyday life.  

At Nam Speech Therapy, we are available to provide a range of services to meet the needs of children/young people with identified SLCN including:

  • Support your educational setting on either a short or longer terms basis.
  • One-off consultations for a particular child.
  • A short term intensive package of support which may involve assessment and screening and individualised therapy packages.
  • Work in close collaboration with nursery / school staff / college and parents.
  • Whole class speech and language screening assessments.
  • Detailed assessment and information gathering.
  • Individualised targets and therapy plans.
  • Individual therapy sessions.
  • Group therapy sessions – both for children with identified speech, language and communication needs and those identified at risk of speech, language and communication difficulties.
  • Session feedback for both teachers and parents.
  • Supporting the setting to be a communication friendly language learning environment.
