We are currently a team of 4 Speech and Language Therapists. Although we have individual caseloads of pupils, we work closely together in a supportive manner. We regularly access both internal and external clinical supervision and meet on a weekly basis for CPD. We work closely with Head of Learning Support, SENCos, Occupational Therapy, pastoral staff, as well as the wider school community (e.g. academic staff, boarding staff).
We are a Specialist Independent School based in Shrewton, Wiltshire. Our pupils are aged between 7 and 18 with diagnoses of Dyslexia and associated conditions. We are looking for an enthusiastic, friendly and experienced individual to join our team. We work with pupils across the school to support speech, language and communication development. Many of our pupils have diagnoses of Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and/or ADHD. We have access to a variety of assessments and resources to ensure sessions are targeted, useful and enjoyable for our pupils. We deliver 1:1 sessions, small group sessions and offer in-class support. There are opportunities to join in all aspects of school life, including activity weeks and school trips.
We support senior school pupils with their independence through community visits to nearby towns. We regularly deliver training within the school to support understanding and support offered to pupils with various speech, language and communication needs (SLCNs). We contribute towards annual reviews for pupils on our caseload, and regularly meet with parents and relevant school staff. Sessions are typically funded by Local Authorities through EHCPs.
