The following information comes from the Highland Literacy Blog:
Speech and Language Therapists across Highland work in collaboration with practitioners in Early Learning and Childcare settings and schools to support adult/ child interactions through the Words Up Early and Words Up Primary Key Messages.
Last session, working with Early Learning and Childcare practitioners in Scottish Attainment Challenge schools, Speech and Language Therapy Assistants supported adult/ child interaction through ongoing coaching, modelling and evaluation.
The report below details the impact of the collaboration on supporting children’s language and communication, a key predictor of children’s later attainment and achievement. As schools consider their Pupil Equity Fund interventions, they may wish to consider the partnership with our local speech and language therapy team in supporting children’s speech, language and communication.
