Explaining what Developmental Language Disorder and Speech Sound Disorder

 

Here is a Powerpoint presentation to explain what Developmental Language Disorder and Speech Sound Disorder are.

 

I have also added a video. This is me in conversation with Dr R Larkin from the Department of Psychology at Nottingham Trent University about the work we do in the Speech & Language Centre.

Admission Applications can be made via slcadmissions@staffordshire.gov.uk

Victoria Speech and Language Centre is a twenty place specialist provision for children aged 4-11 who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).  Our children are organised into two classes – younger and older.

 

We offer full time places for children who need specialist intervention.  Our experienced team includes specialist teachers and teaching assistants as well as a resident Speech and Language Therapist and a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant.  This gives us a very high staffing ratio.

 

Children join us from their mainstream setting and often return to mainstream schooling.  We work closely with feeder schools for transition in and out and offer a bespoke service to meet each child’s individual needs.

 

Our setting is calm, light, bright and spacious and is designed to be communication friendly.  We have access to amazing outdoor spaces as well.

 

Entry is via a specialist termly panel.  Children need both SALT and EP reports.  For full details, please see our protocol below.
