This interactive course aims to support educational practitioners develop their understanding about what they can do to help develop the speech, language and communication skills of pupils working in Pscales when in KS1 or KS2 within mainstream school settings.

 This course is designed for those who:

  • Understand how speech, language and communication typically develops
  • Want to understand how to develop communication interventions that link pupils’ needs profiles with curriculum expectations in KS1 and KS2

  • The pupils’ cognitive skills profile information
  • Expressive language and ‘reality’ of expectations of speech.
  • Implications for schools and specialist settings in supporting children with SEND nee
  • Speech, Language and Communication Interventions for Cognition and Learning

B: Consideration will be given to:

  • Augmentative and alternative communication strategies
  • Developing comprehension skills: Derbyshire to Colourful semantics
  • Developing verbal interaction: developmental or ‘tailored’ and specific
  • Curriculum, classrooms and Speech, language and communication profiles:

C: Case studies of pupils included in mainstream schools will be examined to support a consideration of:

  • What differentiation would look like for these pupils, particularly in relation to their speech, language and communication needs.
  • The scaffolding systems needed for these pupils in the classroom and at break and lunch times
  • Homework expectations
  • Equality and disability discrimination
  • Implications for the ‘whole’ School and specialist settings in supporting children with SEND needs.
