What does SSLIC offer?

The Team works collaboratively with schools and parents to support children in reception and key stage 1 who have a diagnosis of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) or a severe speech disorder. They will:

  • Assess the child’s needs
  • Liaise with parents, class teacher and SENCo to make plans
  • Write input plans with specific targets
  • Provide specialist interventions in school on a weekly basis. This may involve the speech and language therapist, specialist language teacher or both, dependent on individual need
  • Review targets regularly and update plans accordingly

We can also offer a package of online training to schools and parents dependent on individual need, these include:

  • Contrastive Pairs
  • Makaton
  • Early vocabulary and concepts
  • Visuals
  • Information carrying words
