Development Introduction

We take a strategic approach to supporting schools, settings and other organisations to improve the speech, language and communication skills of children and young people.

We support accurate identification, impactful intervention and tracking of pupil progress to achieve positive outcomes through improved understanding and use of language.

Early Years Development

Strategic Development

We all know how important it is for children to develop good communication and interaction skills, not only for their social development, but as a foundation for learning and literacy.

We work together with leaders and practitioners in the early years to achieve positive outcomes for children's communication across the early years. We provide bespoke support, so that we are building on your best practice and identifying areas for further development.

We offer support in the following areas, depending on your priorities:

  • Analysing and building on current systems and practice for supporting language across the setting
  • Curriculum planning and development to support communication and interaction for all children
  • Ensuring all children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) are identified
  • Providing interventions and teaching strategies for children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)
