Speech Language and Communication

Selly Oak Trust School is fortunate to employ their own speech language and communication therapist who assesses students speech language and communication needs and designs bespoke programs for them to follow to support them in their language development. Some students may need to follow The Social Use of Language Programme. This is an intensive course of social language that develops not only spoken language but also body language and the ability to operate successfully in a wide variety of social situations.

SULP impacts significantly on students’ ability and confidence in communicating appropriately, through body language and verbally, with both their peer group and adults with whom they come into contact, as part of their school life or in social situations.

Some students are offered access to Social interactions groups. These groups build upon SULP and continues to develop students self esteem as they learn in a safe way how to interact with their peers in an appropriate manner, by considering the choice of the language they use and the impact this has on others and how develop strategies to cope in social situations.
