Speech Language Communication Need Base (SLCN Base)
We operate a base for children in KS2 who have an EHCP for speech, language and communication needs. The children are integrated into their mainstream classes as much as possible and have specialist teaching for English and Maths within the base setting. We use strategies such as integrated coding (using colour and shape to represent grammar), word learning (using multi-sensory techniques to develop vocabulary) and other visual resources to support learning. We differentiate at a group and individual level, to ensure that children make accelerated progress in their learning and targets.
We benefit from working as a team of professionals, including speech and language therapists, teachers and teaching assistants.
