Speech and Language Therapy 

SALT will be delivered through a variety of 1-1, paired and small group sessions. The focus will be to prepare the young people into an independent life, whilst also supporting them through their new courses. The aim of Speech and Language Therapy support would be to prepare the student for independent life after sixth-form, by providing long-lasting coping strategies for social situations and across the curriculum. Some of the support that will be provided by the SALT includes language, literacy, speech, social communication, exam preparation and work experience support.

The provision will be flexible depending on what is needed from the present cohort. The SALT would need to be flexible in the support the student needs and base it on their learning styles and ‘needs’ at the time. A lot of the work would be preventative instead of reactive to give the students the best start to adult life. 

 

The SALT will work as a part of a multi-disciplinary team alongside the teaching staff, Occupational Therapist, Counsellor and parents to ensure a tailor-made student-focussed approach.
