Clinic sessions are useful when first introducing a target so that understanding commences before a child gets to practice in a more natural environment.
- Support in the home is also available where deemed necessary in order to support parents and family members in understanding and modelling how therapy targets can be incorporated into the daily schedule.
- Using these techniques the importance of functionality in implementing targets and achieving goals is emphasized and success is also more apparent.
El.evate Speech & Language Therapy Service offers intervention from children from 4 months to 18 years. We work with children with a range of different needs, in a variety of contexts.
We provide on-site services within the nursery for children with special educational needs. This is to help them, their teachers and support staff observe and include them all aspects of their educational life; from accessing the curriculum to taking part in the social aspects of school.
El.evate Language provides a screening assessment specific to nurseries and reception class, which covers all areas of communication for children entering the school system.
The aim is to evaluate skills and highlight areas that may be beneficial for parents and teachers to focus on even if therapy intervention is not required.
More significant difficulties may also be highlighted through this screen and can lead to early referrals that can prevent avoidable academic difficulties and put any required support in place as early as possible.
