Speech and Language Support

At Shoreditch Park Primary School we strive to ensure that all of our pupils are able to communicate confidently and effectively. We recognise the vital role that Speech and Language Therapists play in supporting children who have difficulties with language and communication. We have three speech and language therapists who work in school on a weekly basis.

Our speech and language therapists support pupils with a number of different needs, including:

  • specific language impairment
  • specific difficulties in producing sounds
  • stammering
  • social interaction difficulties
  • selective mutism
  • swallowing difficulties

Take a look at some of the SaLT interventions that are running this year. These are reviewed throughout the year, based on pupil needs.
