Speech & Language

Hayley, our Speech and Language Therapist, comes into school regularly to work with the pupils in our purpose-built Therapy Room. When Hayley is not here, Gail, one of our HLTAs works with the children and follows the programmes set for each individual.

The pupils use a range of communication aids to assist their learning. All children use Makaton sign language; parental workshops are offered throughout the year to ease communication at home. Hayley has uploaded some videos of common signs below to demonstrate. 

In addition to Makaton, the pupils also use Communicate in Print symbols
