Wellcomm Speech and Language Assessments
As part of our commitment to Children’s speech and language development, children are screened during their first term at Pre-School using the Wellcomm Speech and Language toolkit if parents have any concerns or staff feel that an assessment is necessary.
Where necessary, plans are put in place to support the child's communication and language skills and information and guidance is shared with parents.
We work extremely closely with parents to support children and parents where necessary - we have a large stock of information leaflets on all sorts of subjects such as sleeping, eating, speech & language right through to supporting children's learning. We also work with individual families to provide home learning activities to support their child's development. If you would like some information, please speak to Jean.
