Speak Write


We work closely with Debbie Wilshaw from SpeakWrite to ensure our Early Years staff are able to identify those children who may require clinical assessment for Speech and Language, whether it be difficulties with articulation, receptive language, expressive language or social use of language.  Debbie uses non-diagnostic Language Progression Assessments to help us establish any areas that may need additional school-based intervention.  These also help us identify any children who we feel would benefit from further clinical assessment with our local NHS team of therapists.  We also provide a range of additional intervention groups or 1:1 support to work on strategies such as:

  • Cued Articulation
  • Nursery Narratives
  • Helicopter Stories
  • Attention and Listening Groups
  • Attention Autism Groups
  • Colourful Semantics
