Gemma Corby What is this strategy about?
There are links with behaviour issues in pupils and Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). In order to address these issues, we need to first ensure we support these pupils as best we can.What are some signs of Speech, Language and Communication Needs?
Speech, Language and Communication Needs can cause issues with: sequencing; finding or remembering new vocabulary; identifying idioms, metaphors and sarcasm; staying on topic; labelling emotions; grammar. Children with SLCN may also show withdrawn, hyperactive or disruptive signs.
How can speech, language and communication difficulties affect learning?
Speech, language and communication skills are essential for children’s literacy development. Difficulty in understanding and processing language can lead to delays in the development of phonics skills and reading.Click here to learn how to support Pupils with Hearing Loss.
