Speech and Language Therapy

Mrs A. Nadeem is the speech and language therapist (SaLT) at Pike Fold primary school.

 

What is the speech and language therapists’ role within school?

The service aims to provide treatment, support and care for children who have communication difficulties. The SaLT works with parents, carers and other professionals, such as teachers, nurses, occupational therapists and educational psychologists, to ensure all children receive the support they need.

 

Who will the speech and language therapist work with in school?

The SaLT will provide an individual therapy programme for children with specific difficulties. Furthermore, she will provide whole school and targeted support to improve communication and inclusion within Pike Fold.

 

I think my child may have speech, language, and communication difficulties. What shall I do?

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s language development or speech sounds, please speak to your child’s class teacher. Ask them to refer your child to the school’s speech and language therapy service.
