Speech & Language

  The Children’s Speech and Language Service provides specialist
assessment and treatment for children who, for a variety of reasons,
may be experiencing difficulties communicating. The service currently
operates an open referral system, meaning anyone who has concerns
may refer a child, although all forms must have parental consent before
they are considered.
The service helps children who have difficulty with:
•  Talking clearly
•  Expressing themselves
•  Social communication
•  Understanding what is said to them
•  Talking fluently
•  Voice quality
•  Feeding / swallowing

Many of the children at Courtlands receive support from this service. If
staff or parents have concerns about a child’s communication, the
school is able to refer to this service via the SENCo.
