Boost the skills of your team

Schools are required to assess pupil need, plan how to support them, deliver high quality teaching and learning and review the children’s progress, but there aren’t always the right resources or high quality CPD for staff to access.

  • Speech, language and communication skills for some children are really delayed.

  • Many schools do not have enough support to identify Speech, Langauge and Communication Needs (SLCN) and understand the types of difficulties faced by children, despite rising numbers of SEND and SLCN.

  • Speech, Language and communication needs impact on most areas of learning, from literacy and maths skills, to social development and mental health.

  • Schools need to have access to resources and training in SLCN in order to identify children’s difficulties and to help them make progress and overcome their barriers to learning and life skills.

  • Education staff need accessible training, where they can IMPLEMENT their new knowledge and skills which will have an immediate and lasting IMPACT on their pupils.

  • Staff CPD and training opportunities are different post-pandemic and schools are searching for more online options. This package provides flexibility for staff members to access CPD online.

What are the benefits for your school or setting?

  • Staff get instant and unlimited access to specialist training on a range of topics which are unavailable in many locations.

  • Settings save money on individual course fees by purchasing the training package for the whole team of staff. You'll also save money on travel and finding cover for sessions.

  • Settings will see an increase in the quality of teaching through awareness of SLCN and application of strategies to support needs.

  • Areas of need can be quickly identified using the resources, with swift delivery of interventions by staff using the range of training and resources provided.

  • Staff members can access the training remotely and complete the course at their own pace. This enables schools to meet training and CPD requirements.

  • With speech, language and communication needs being the most common type of special educational need in school-aged children, your setting or school can boast to have a skilled workforce to support these children.

Meet Ofsted Requirements

  • Ofsted considerations for the Quality of Education can be met through better trained staff who are more knowledgeable and skilled in working with children with a range of Special Educational Needs.

  • Senior Leaders in schools can plan and implement professional development, using virtual measures which enables staff to adopt a flexible approach.

  • Teaching and Support Staff will gain a good secure grounding in spotting red flags for speech, language and communication needs and be able to track progress using the resources provided.

  • The needs of individual children can be more easily highlighted using the checklist and screener resources which will enable targets to be more easily created and supported.

  • Staff can support learning to help the children make the best possible progress by adopting strategies and completing interventions suited to the needs of individuals.

Highly Specialist Speech & Language Therapist

Beth Morrant

Hi, I'm Beth.

My role is to train and support education staff who work with children with speech, language and communication needs in schools.

I'm a fun and creative Speech and Language Therapist with lots of ideas to help children develop their communication skills.

I have years and years of experience and working with children and young adults in a range of settings including schools, preschools and clinics. I’ve worked with lots of wonderful practitioners and staff in schools and preschools throughout my career, and I've provided a lot of information, advice, training and support for a variety of Speech and Language topics.

As well as training education staff, I also deliver seminars as a guest lecturer to Speech and Language Therapy Students at the University of Essex. These cover a range of topics, including service provision, speech sounds, stammering, vocabulary and word finding, assessment and intervention.

I work as an Independent Specialist Speech and Language Therapist through my own local service where I see children in schools in Mid Essex and in my clinic. I have a master’s degree in Health and Human Sciences, qualifying as a Speech & Language Therapist in 2009. My undergraduate degree is in Linguistics and Spanish.

I’m registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, the Health and Care Professionals Council and the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice.

I'm a mum of 2 and my children have helped me make some of these demonstration videos. As you will see, they each have their own personalities and characteristics.

As a result of my training sessions, dozens of Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Preschool Practitioners have felt empowered to help their students with their speech and language targets.

With The Speech and Language Garden, I hope to give you some valuable ideas and resources to help educate you and support the children you work with. I want to empower Teachers, Assistants and SENCos to deliver effective and fun interventions by providing information, advice, training and demonstrations.
