This module aims to equip leaders with knowledge and strategies to support students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). The overarching module is split into two specific modules.
The first is a general module that covers essential knowledge to support policy and practice within schools. It aims to equip leaders with the knowledge, skills and tools to create a ‘communication friendly’ school in which each child develops the strongest language and communication skills s/he is capable of.
The second module is for specialists or those working directly with children who have SCLN. The specialist session focuses on raising the profile of SLCN in school, understanding the strengths and development areas of the school and developing staff skills and confidence to identify and meet the needs of learners.
