21 Jan C&D joins forces with Colchester Teacher Training Consortium
‘More than 10% of children and young people have communication difficulties and too many are not getting the support they need’
Bercow Ten Years On, 2018
In light of this shocking statistic, C&D Independent Speech Therapy and Colchester Teacher Training Consortium (CTTC) have joined forces on an exciting new project with the aim of increasing teachers’ knowledge and ability to support children with speech, language and communication needs in the classroom.
This innovative piece of work involves trainee teachers spending time shadowing one of C&D’s experienced Speech and Language Therapists in school. Trainees will have the opportunity to observe assessment and therapy sessions and gain a greater understanding of the range of difficulties children can face. We hope that raising awareness of the profession and how we work in schools will increase teachers’ ability to identify and support children in the classroom and reduce the need for specialist intervention further down the line.
We want to thank CTTC and the Colchester schools for their cooperation and look forward to a successful partnership!
