News and Feedback
We would like to gather feedback on the elements of the Children's Speech and Language Therapy Service that are working and identify areas to improve. We are therefore running a series of surveys and would very much appreciate you taking 5-10 minutes to give us your views.
Community as Teachers Events
We are also holding a number of forums across the county to get feedback on your experiences, your ideas to improve the service and any other comments you may wish to make. You can find dates and times of the events, and how to book places, in this leaflet.

Speech and Language Therapy Ladders Book
A book to help youngsters with communication difficulties get the most from their schooling has been written by speech and language therapists from East Coast Community Healthcare. The book, called ‘Target Ladders: Speech, Language and Communication Needs’, is for early years settings staff, primary school teachers and special educational needs coordinators. It aims to help them identify targets children need to achieve and plan activities to help them with listening skills, remembering, understanding/learning new words, speech sound skills and building sentences – skills which will make learning easier. It comes with a CD of resource material including target templates and progress records.
